SYNcere Printing, LLC uses four different techniques: screen printing, sublimation printing, vinyl printing and embroidery.
Each technique uses different equipment and application methods. There are pros and cons to each technique, and we’re committed to meeting your printing goals.
Silkscreen printing applies ink colors one layer at a time. Your old rock band tour tshirts and high school athletic hoodies were likely screen printed. We take your design, create screens for each color, and apply colors one-by-one.
Silkscreen is great for apparel and can be very cost-effective with larger orders. The technique, however, can only print simpler shape designs and gets more expensive as you add more colors. Over a long period of time, your design may show signs of wear. Your apparel project will likely be screen printed.
Vinyl printing is when a sheet of polyurethane vinyl is cut to produce a design that is then heat applied to your item or garment.
This method of printing is usually limited to 1 color. The art is required in a vector format which is produced in a software such as Adobe Illustrator, which produces lines as opposed to pixels like in a regular photograph or jpeg image.
Sublimation is defined as “the transition of a substance directly from the solid to the gas phase without passing through the intermediate liquid phase.” Sublimation is an endothermic (absorption of heat) transition that occurs at temperatures and pressures below a substance’s triple point in its phase diagram. In common language, sublimation printing is a type of heat transfer printing that requires special ink (gel), special transfer paper, and special heat press.
Sublimation is an excellent choice for highly-detailed, multi-color designs. The ink won’t peel like screen printed ink, too. The technique is not, however, large-volume friendly.
We will always work with you to find the best and most affordable printing method for your project!
Embroidery is a type of sewing which decorates fabric in a handicraft fashion. The craft involves stitching pictures such as logos, decorative accents or other icons using a needle and either thread or yarn. It can be a simple or intricate design.
