Why Choose a Printed Polo Shirt?
Whether it’s a logo for work or your own personal design, printing can be advantageous in a number of different ways. Although there are several different printing techniques available, the technique of choice for polo shirts is screen printing. Screen printing is one of the popular ways to print onto any kind of garment and can offer you a bright, colourful and long lasting print.
Printed polo shirts are a great alternative to embroidery if you are looking for something a little different. Most of us are used to seeing embroiderery on polo shirts, as this is the most common option but that doesn’t mean that you have to follow the crowd. Printed polo shirts are tough enough for everyday wear and tear and can be safely put through the wash just like you normal clothing, so there’s no need to worry about constant replacements.
Did you know that polo shirt printing can also be more cost effective than embroidery? Due to the complicated process of embroidering garments, the set up costs and general running of the screen printing machine is cheaper. These savings can range from small to large but are especially important if you need to print in larger quantities, as you could be saving yourself hundreds of pounds. Try playing around with a few different options before sending off your request. You might be surprised at just how much you can save.
Alongside a low cost, printed polo shirts offer a greater choice of colours and better design flexibility too. There are number of different restrictions that you must abide by with embroidery, such as singular colours and letters of a certain width. However, with screen printing you are able to choose from a wide range of pantone colours. Therefore, if you decide to use pantone colours during your logo design process, you will be able to achieve an exact colour match.
There is also more sizing flexibility with screen printing as well. Designs can be up scaled or downscaled as necessary, making them the perfect option for businesses and charitable organisations. Although some effects are not possible with screen printed polo shirts, for the most part they offer the designer or company a fair amount of design flexibility.
