What is the difference between digital printing and screen printing if I want to custom silk scarves?

 

Firstly let’s see what is screen printing and digital printing.


Screen printing involves creating a stencil (printers call this a "screen"), and then using that stencil to apply layers of ink on the printing surface. Each color is applied using a different stencil, one at a time, combined to achieve the final look.


Digital printing is a much newer process that involves your artwork being processed by a computer, and then printed directly onto the surface of your product. Digital printing is not a heat transfer or appliqu'e, as the ink is directly adhered to the fabric. Each printing process has its strengths.


Below is the comparisons between digital printing and screen printing


Digital   Printing

Screen   Printing

Suitable   designs

The   design could be precise, so small, intricate details. it’s the go-to choice   for sharp photographic prints or other complex artwork or images.

It’s   suitable only for simple lines and patterns.

Minimum quantity

The  quantity could be 1pcs

As   the printing plate cost need to be considered, so the MOQ is higher,   regularly it’s 100-200pcs each design

Cost

It does not has printing plate cost, if you do small order, the price is reasonable

If   you do small quantity, the cost is higher as the printing plate cost should   be included, but if you could do 300pcs above, the cost may lower than   digital printing way.

Flexibility

Digital   printing allows for greater variability without driving up costs and   production times. If you wanted to print the same design with multiple   captions, this type of variability would be costly with screen printing. With   DTG, it is simply a Photoshop manipulation.

Not   so flexible

Environmentally   friendly

The digital printing process doesn’t   require a lot of different materials, equipment or chemicals. This means   there is less waste and no worry of chemical disposal.


It   will have water pollution
