Umbrellas are one of the personal items of the four seasons, and the individual patterns on the umbrellas can well show their individuality. Generally, the individuality can be guessed by the umbrellas held in people’s hands.
Generally, the commonly used umbrella printing methods include screen printing, offset printing, and digital thermal transfer. Different printing methods are suitable for different styles and quantities. Therefore, each printing method has its own advantages. The following Tianqi advertising umbrella manufacturers briefly introduce these three printing processes.
1. Silk screen
The price of silk screen printing is relatively cheaper, but the color is limited. If the color is compared, and there is a gradual color effect, it may not be achieved.
2. Offset printing
Offset printing has some advantages in color than silk printing, but the surface layer of the fabric has a layer of glue. If it is folded together, it will stick together. After it is stretched again, the colors may be staggered, and the cost of offset printing is also higher.
3. Digital heat transfer
The advantage of digital thermal transfer is that there is no limit to the color, the color reproduction is high, and it can be printed in small batches, but the disadvantage is that the cost is much higher than that of screen printing.
At present, the most advanced printing technology is digital thermal transfer printing. As the name implies, digital printing must be intervened by digital equipment. It is because of the close cooperation of computers and printers to complete personalized pattern printing, so the name comes from. Many customers think that the cost of heat transfer umbrellas is high, but next, let me calculate an account for you. I think you may change your previous ideas. If an umbrella factory receives an order for 100 umbrellas, the pattern is so complicated that it must be printed with digital heat transfer. At this time, there are only two options: open-plate printing and digital printing. For printing, if the colors are too mixed, then four-color printing is required. One color is at least 1600 yuan for the development fee, and the four-color is 6400 yuan (this depends on the size of the plate), and the printing fee is not counted. Let’s take a look at the digital printing, 100 pieces, 10 yuan per square, if it is a 21-inch umbrella, according to its printing area, about 10 yuan per square, but with the open version of the sublimation printing, the printing fee They are all prohibitive. So many friends say that digital printing is expensive. I can only say that it is expensive compared to printing a few kilometers of fabric, but if you really have a few kilometers, we will recommend you to choose other more economical printing methods. So the most suitable is the best.
