T-Shirt Printing

This category shares insights to T-shirts and Polo T-shirts printing in Singapore. 

Firstly, thank you very much for purchasing your custom shirts printed from DC9 Gifts Pte Ltd! We hope you like the customized printing and do let us know if you have any feedback.

This letter serves to share some important pointers in washing your silkscreen printed T-shirts to ensure you have a much lasting print for your artwork. These general tips apply to both round neck t-shirts and polo t-shirts alike, be it silkscreen or heat transfer printed t-shirts.

  1. Use cold water and avoid extreme hot water if possible. This will be gentle on the fabric. 

  2. Do not use strong bleaching agent or strong washing powder. 

  3. Turn your shirts inside out during washing and drying. This is to protect the print and avoid scratching with other items in the washing machine. 

  4. Do not place your silkscreen printed shirts into hot dryer. It will cause the ink to harden and crack.

  5. Wash similar color clothes together. Do not place light color fabrics with dark color fabrics.

We hope you find the above shirt washing tips useful and we look forward to do your next customized t-shirt printing project with us!

Yours Sincerely,

DC9 Gifts Team

Customization of apparels such as polo T-shirts, honeycomb collared T-shirts, quick dry T-shirts and 100% cotton T-shirts is our forte. We have supplied these custom t-shirt printing for many years and across all industries in Singapore.

Over the years, we have gained much experience in custom T-shirt printing in terms of silkscreen printing, heat transfer printing, embroidery, and sublimation. We have also identified t-shirt printing issues which were solved to enable us to supply much better-quality prints to our clients.

Today we are going to address one common silkscreen printing issue that many clients have with other T-shirt suppliers – printing of white artwork on a black colored cotton round neck shirt.

There are 3 common issues that tend to appear with printing of white ink on a black base made of 100% cotton.

First issue lies with poor printing technique which gives a grayish print out instead of a solid white print. Printing technique is extremely important in achieving a good white print. The printer must flood and apply the squeeze in a moderate fashion and pressure. Too hard or too light a pressure or speed will result in faint or undesirable t-shirt printing.

After t-shirt is printed, there’s a need to carry our washing test. This is when 2 more issues will tend to occur – artwork peeling off and cracking.

If artwork peels off, then probably the printer did not carry out post printing treatment. For professional T-shirt printer like DC9 Gifts Pte Ltd, we will always do a heat press of the artwork to ensure this issue does not happen.

Finally, if the T-shirt cracks after washing, then the paint might not be compatible with the shirt material. There’s a need to contact the paint supplier to find out more.
