It is the method most commonly used for larger orders of t shirt printing Singapore as most printers offer discounts on the price per shirt when they use this option. It is best for simple images with three or fewer colors since it takes a lot of set up and one screen is needed per color. The more complicated it is the longer it takes the printer to set up so the more they will charge.

What is Vinyl printing?
