T-shirt Printing- Evolving Over the Years

September 30th, 2011 No comments

In 1959, a more stretchable and durable ink, called plastisol was invented, which allowed more styles and variety in T-shirt designs and T-shirt printing. During the 1960s, screen-printing and tie-dyeing on basic Tshirts caught on and became a huge success. The commonest form of decorating commercial Tshirts is screen-printing. Screen-printing involves separating a design into individual colors. Plastisol or other water-based inks are then applied to the Tshirt through special screens, which limit the area where the ink is applied and deposited. In all commercial T-shirt printing, specific colors in the design to be printed are used. Few companies continue to use the water-based inks on the printed Tshirts that they supply. Most companies manufacturing Tshirts and providing Tshirt printing facilities prefer using plastisol because it can be used on varying colors without needing to make color adjustments at the art level.

T-shirt printing companies keep up with the trends, fashion, and demands and use Specialty inks, which include puff, shimmer, discharge, and chino, based inks. Metallic foils too can be stamped and heat pressed on plastisol ink. When this is combined with the specialty shimmer ink, the metallics provide a mirror effect wherever the screen-printed plastisol ink had been applied. As these specialty inks are quiet expensive they are used more on garments available in boutiques. Some other methods of decoration, which is used in Tshirt printing include airbrush, embroidery, applique, embossing or impressing, and ironing on of flock lettering and heat transfers.

In the late 1980s and 1990s, Tshirts with logos of prominent designers became popular, especially with teens and young adults. With these Tshirts, consumers could flaunt their liking for particular designer brands in a very inexpensive way. Some designer Tshirt brands include Calvin Klein, Ralph Lauren, FUBU,  and The Gap. Major consumer product companies like Coca-cola have used printed Tshirts and Tshirt printing for product advertising since the 70s. Since 1990s, companies of all sizes prefer Tshirts with their corporate logo and message as a part of their advertising campaign.

By the end of the last century, designing of custom T-shirts on a Tshirt companies website became very popular. Many Tshirt companies with websites started using digital printing such as DTG printing or Direct to Garment printing, allowing customers to design Tshirts online without the compulsion of having to place a minimum order for T-shirt printing. Customers can place an order for even one custom design. Customers can even select branded Tshirts and get their custom design printed on the Tshirt. They can not only select the brand, style, color, and size, but also the printing method with features like Foil, Metallic, Glitter, and Vinyl. Some companies even provide free graphic designing for orders of 50+ t-shirts, making it a win-win situation for even a small company.

Clutch Handbags And Purses For Every Occasion

September 27th, 2011 No comments

Do you often get confused on what bag to match with this outfit and that? Do you spend time trying on your clothes and trying on the different handbags you have in your closet just to make sure that your entire ensemble looks fabulous? If you do, then you are just one of the millions of girls worldwide who spend everyday thinking of what to wear and what to match with what. Sometimes when I try to think about it, I even get surprised at the fact that I don’t complain transferring my things everyday from one handbag to another daily because I want my outfit from the clothes, the bag, the shoes and the accessories to match.

If you don’t carry on so much stuff, I would strongly suggest that you invest in clutch purses and clutch handbags. They practically look great with any outfit irregardless if you are going out for a night out with your special guy, going off to work, attending a wedding or just going out to shop with friends. You will find these bags to be the perfect accessory especially if you don’t have that much stuff to carry around with you. The many variations of clutch purses in a wide variety of colors, shapes, designs and style can project varying themes from being sexy, sophisticated, cute, chic and even formal. You will find that they come with a variety of embellishments like beads, crystals, sequins, brooches and embroidery. Some are even designed with detachable chains or straps, clasp closure and internal as well external pocket design. You will find them to be made from almost any material like silk and leather to name a few. Because of their small size, they are most appropriate accessories for bridesmaids during a wedding.

You can find a wide variety of clutch purses and handbags on online stores. With the array of choices to choose from I’m pretty sure that you would be selecting more than one bag for that matter. Buying online is easy and convenient. With just the click of a button on the choice you have made and providing your credit card details as well as mailing address, your clutch is well on your way to your doorstep. I would suggest though that you ensure that you are entering a very secure site since you will be providing your personal and credit card details. Check also the shipping expenses that will be charged for it usually vary from vendor to vendor although most sites offer free shipping costs.

Embroidery Software proel – Satin TrueType lettering – Tutorial 01

September 24th, 2011 1 comment –

This is a tutorial of TrueType lettering tool (with satin stitch) in professional embroidery software proel.

Description of True Type Lettering:

This tool provides full freedom in the implementation of the lettering, as it allows you to punch any true type font and create your own personal database of embroidered fonts. The tool is designed primarily to meet the needs of professional embroiderers, and therefore makes available, in addition to the automatic font creation, the tools for the correction and customization of the sequence of stitches.

With this convenient tool it is not necessary to calculate all the alphabet: the single letters are gradually added to the font database as they are used. Changes made to a font are permanent and the normal size lettering is managed separately from the small size one.

The result is striking: the resulting fonts are always perfect and really compete with those manually punched. Request a demo of this great product and see by yourself!
