Screen Printing vs Heat Transfers: Cost, Time, Profit

As a garment decorator, you have two primary methods of doing business – screen printing and heat transfers. Stahls’ performed a time study to find out how long it took to complete a job of 6 with screen printing vs heat transfer . For this test we used a 2-color design and left chest placement. **Screen Printing** Screen printing has a far longer set up time. In order to print the design you have to: - Create and expose the screen - Wash and dry - Prep the screen - Register - Print Altogether, the process of printing the 6-shirt job takes 38 minutes with screen printing. Without labor, the cost of screen printing per design comes out to $6.67. Now let’s take a look at heat transfer printing. **Heat Transfer Printing** Here are the steps required to apply a design to a garment using a heat press: - Cut the design from a vinyl cutter - Weed the design - Apply with a heat press The same job took 21 minutes to complete using heat transfers. Without labor, the cost of heat transfers per design comes out to $0.45 **Cost with Labor** Now let’s factor labor in. With screen printing, most of the labor happens up front with setup. After setup the cost of labor falls considerably and the amount is amortized over the number of pieces that you make. With heat transfers, the same amount of labor is involved with each piece. **Screen printing and heat transfers go hand in hand** When you do a side-by-side comparison of cost with labor added, you’ll see that each method is well suited for specific types of jobs. Screen printing makes sense when the quantity is high enough because the quantity will outweigh the labor in set up. Smaller quantities are well-suited for heat printing, since the labor cost remains the same throughout. Heat applied graphics and screen printing go hand in hand, so in order to make the maximum profit for your business, you need to have access to both. The heat press featured in this video was the Hotronix Fusion heat press, available at: www.stahls.com/fusion-heat-press.

Part 1 - AMAZINGLY Simple way to make A Photo and Put it On a Shirt!

SAVE 15% on Screen Printing Sheets and Supplies: Use Nate15 at Checkout! @ EZscreenprint: http://www.ezscreenprint.com In this video I take a picture with my phone from the V for Vendetta comic book then print out the image onto a transparency. I burn the image into an EZscreenprint sheet and then print the deisgn onto a shirt using Speedball Ink. I have used a alot of screen printing kits. Like the ones you can get from Ryonet. but this is just so simple and easy. I like catspitproductions videos, I wish I had a space that large to work in! I do not recommend Yudu. It does not remove enough of the steps to be worth buying it over a Speedball Kit.

Screen printing is a fantastic way to cheaply make branded items, or even one off custom pieces. Need a silly t-shirt to surprise a friend with? Printing it yourself is the cheapest way to make that happen! Kids can even get the hang of printing VERY quickly and be apart of the entire process, which is awesome!
Here are a few things that I didn’t cover in the video that I think will give you better results.
Use high dpi screens. These provide finer detail, and have significantly improved my prints.
Have someone hold your frame so that you can use two hands to evenly pull the squeegee.
If you don’t have access to a dryer for heat setting, you can cover the print with a piece of paper and iron it for a minute.
If using a dark material, look for an ink labeled “super opaque”. You’ll get a brighter colored print.

You’ll need a screen and squeegee to start.
Also, some photo emulsion for screen printing.
Add water to the sensitizer, then mix it with the emulsion.
Mix thoroughly until it’s an even green color.
Pour just a small amount onto the screen.
Use the squeegee to spread it evenly on both sides of the screen. Try to get even and full coverage by alternating directions and sides.
Dry the emulsion in front of a fan and IN THE DARK.
After it’s dry, quickly lay your artwork, backwards, on the back of the screen. You can print your art on transparencies at most office supplies stores or copy centers.

Tape the art in place, then lay on a piece of glass to hold it against the screen.
Apply a very bright light for 30-45 minutes.
You can also use sunlight, but the time may vary depending on cloud cover and placement.
The areas covered by your art do not get exposed when you remove the transparency.
Use a light spray and soft toothbrush to wash out the unexposed emulsion.
Be careful not to use too much force when spraying it out or you will remove emulsion around your design as well.
Use painters tape to mask any areas that you don’t want to print yet, or areas where the emulsion isn’t intact.
Layout your shirt on smooth, flat surface and remove wrinkles.
Place your design where you want it to be printed.
Lay a thick bead of ink above the art, extended past both ends. Be sure to add extra ink above large areas to be printed.
Even though I’m working alone here, you’ll have better luck to have someone hold your screen, then use two hands to evenly pull the squeegee fully across your screen.
Remove the screen and wash out all of the ink before it dries. After the ink dries, run your shirt through a clothes dryer for 5 minutes to heat set the print.
The screens can be reused by cleaning them with emulsion remover.
Spread a small amount across both sides of the screen.
Then use a hose to wash out the emulsion until the screen is clean. Dark inks will stain the material of the screen, but this will not affect future prints. Just make sure to remove all of the emulsion. Second channel: bit.ly/iltms-2
