Printing Techniques on Apparel and Their Qualities

As a creator, you might also be exploring options for printing on apparel. ShirtSpace provides this range and more to bring your vision to life, from idea to garment.

 HTV for Apparel

Heat Transfer Vinyl, or also known as HTV, is THE printing technique for crafters and creatives looking for adding vibrant and durable designs to various fabric surfaces. Using a heat press, HTV vinyl is adhered to fabrics, creating eye-catching custom apparel, accessories, and more. Its ease of use and ability to produce intricate designs make it a popular choice for DIY crafters and businesses alike.


Sublimation is one of the most popular printing methods! It turns ink into a gas to create vivid, long-lasting designs on various materials like fabric and ceramics. It’s known for its durability and vibrant colors, making it a popular choice for custom products. 


Machine embroidery allows for the production of customized apparel, accessories, and decorative items with consistent and professional-quality embroidery. Whether for personal expression or branding, machine embroidery is a popular choice for adding a touch of elegance and uniqueness to textiles.

DTG printing 

DTG (Direct-to-Garment) printing is a cutting-edge method for creating custom apparel and textile designs. Using specialized inkjet technology, DTG printers directly apply ink to fabric, producing high-resolution and full-color prints with remarkable detail and vibrancy. It’s a preferred choice for short-run, personalized garments, as it offers endless creative possibilities and excellent print quality.
