Heat Transfer Printing and Screen Printing

Difference between Heat Transfer Printing & Screen Printing

Heat transfer printing can print colorful logo at a time, while screen printing can print 1c logo only. If multi-colored logo needs printing through screen printing craft, then overprinting is required. Although we can print multi-colored logo through screen printing, the logo cannot be too complicated. Because screen printing can only print color vectors.

From the perspective of the two printing crafts, the heat transfer printing can print surface of higher arc.

So it’s suggested to select screen printing, if what you want to have printed is simple; if logo is too complicated, heat transfer would be a better choice.
