Silkscreen printing emerges as a favored and user-friendly method for printing designs on a diverse range of products. Transitioning seamlessly onto any fabric, regardless of its composition or treatment, it effortlessly transfers intricate patterns due to its fabric-friendly nature.

At X Athletic Wear, we opt for negatives instead of butter paper when it comes to intricate designs, resulting in sharper and more well-defined prints.

Flock Screen Printing

Garments typically consist of synthetic fibers such as Cotton, rayon, and polyester. To ensure ink adherence, an adhesive fluid is initially applied to the designated print area. Then, the ink is applied through the screen. Through group Screen Printing, a smooth and opulent texture is achieved. For multiple colors, each color is individually dyed and subsequently transferred onto the adhesive coating using the screen. The result is a plush, soft, and embossed print that exudes a luxurious sensation.

Water Based Pigment Screen Printing

Shade Screen Printing, also known as water-based Screen Printing, bears resemblance to Discharge Screen Printing. However, it employs water-based ink instead of plastic-based or Plastisol ink to achieve color variation. This method is predominantly utilized on white and light-colored garments. Water-Based Printing offers a softer texture and vibrant color choices, delivering exceptional results on light-colored fabrics such as white, off-white, or light gray.

Discharge Screen Printing

The Discharge Screen Printing method employs similar equipment but uses different inks. Specifically designed for this Printing technique, release inks are utilized. These inks, when applied to T-Shirts, remove the original color from the designated area and replace it with the desired hue. When touched, the print seamlessly blends with the fabric, creating a natural texture. Release ink can be utilized as a standalone print or as an under base for additional prints. It provides an alternative to Water-Based Printing, especially for lighter color options.

High Denisty 3D Printing

High-density printing sets itself apart from puff printing by offering sharper edges and a 3D Effect. Unlike puff printing, which may lack sharpness, high-density printing utilizes viscous inks that flow smoothly through screens without adhering to them. Consequently, it produces crisper and finer edges, accompanied by a subtle puff effect. It is advisable to avoid regular washing of high-density prints due to their firm composition, which can lead to faster fading compared to other printing methods. Nevertheless, this technique proves highly advantageous when applied to Garments that undergo infrequent laundering.

Crack Screen Printing

Crack screen printing, also known as crackle screen printing or distress screen printing, employs a particular type of ink that generates a cracked or distressed appearance when it dries.

The process involves applying crackle ink onto screens, which is then transferred onto T-Shirts, followed by the application of heat to aid in the drying process. Once the ink has dried, the cracks become visible, giving the design a unique distressed aesthetic. This technique is commonly utilized to imbue T-Shirts, Jerseys, or Jackets with a vintage charm. By incorporating crack screen Printing, you can enhance your apparel business and distinguish your products from traditionally printed items.

At X Athletic Wear, we offer Sulfate coloring as a choice to enhance the texture of your Garments. This technique allows for the creation of various effects, such as color variations, acid-like appearances, or complete fading. It provides a unique aesthetic and unlocks endless possibilities for customization. We encourage you to explore sulfate coloring as a way to personalize your Garments according to your preferences.

Sublimation Printing Process

At X Athletic Wear, we offer Sublimation Printing as a more intricate alternative to Heat Transfers. To initiate this process, Sublimation ink is applied to the desired area and subjected to heat. As heat is applied, the ink undergoes a transformation, converting into a gas and seamlessly integrating itself into the fabric. The outcome is a cleaner and more professional print appearance. It is important to emphasize that Sublimation Printing is specifically designed for 100 percent polyester fabrics or polyester-coated items. Despite involving the use of a heat press, sublimation printing should not be confused with heat transfer printing. 

Our Sublimation Printing technique ensures there are no white marks by utilizing cut panels that are later assembled, resulting in a superior visual outcome. This method is highly recommended for sports jerseys and other moisture-wicking polyester garments that often feature digital designs. Although sublimation printing is typically applied across the entire shirt or product, at x athletic wear, we offer the flexibility to place prints in any desired location as long as the polyester fabric is white.
