What is the best printing technique for my design?

We offer two different methods of printing - screen and sublimation. Screen is suitable for printing on natural fabrics like cotton whereas sublimation is advisable for printing on polyester and polyester blends.
Screen printing is the best option for designs that require a high level of vibrancy, when printing on dark shirts, or specialty products like foils,flock,gels,puff,high density are used. The ink in screen printing is applied thicker than digital printing, which results in brighter colors even on darker shirts.
Sublimation is best used for items that require high amounts of detail, sharpness and brightness
