At Quality Business Printing Consultants we are dedicated to helping our customers meet their marketing and promotional needs. If you are looking to expand your business, have a new product to promote or just want to send a promotional item to your customers, Quality Business Printing Consultants is at your service.

We do our best to help you get the best results. This is why we work to teach you what and how to set up your files correctly for print.

  1. Use Vector Art. A vector graphic retains its crispness at any magnification, other graphic software appears jagged when scaled up. When your artwork or logo is in a vectored format (either .ai or .eps), it allows you to increase or decrease the size of the graphic without compromising the integrity of the original image. The end result is a crisp, clear, and readable image no matter what the final output or size!
  2.  Use templates for the material you want designed and printed – business card template, brochure template, postcard template etc. this will show you where the piece will be cut off and if it is going to be too close to your wording.
  3. Know the color spectrum. Spot Color or full color make sure the resolution is 300 dpi (dots per inch) not 70 dpi like web designers use.
  4. Always request a proof. Keep the proof on your computer in case you want to make changes in the future.

Learn the Screen Printing Terms

DIRECT TO GARMENT

Direct to garment printing (DTG) is a print method used for creating customized apparel and accessories. Unlike the more complicated processes like those used in screen printing, DTG printing is simple. Print full-color images directly on to garments, similar to the way you use a regular inkjet printer to print on paper.

DYE-SUBLIMINATION PRINTING

Dye-sublimation printing (or dye-sub printing) is a computer printing technique which uses heat to transfer dye onto materials such as a plastic, card, paper, or fabric. The sublimation name was first applied because the dye was considered to make the transition between the solid and gas states without going through a liquid stage. This understanding of the process was later shown to be incorrect, as there is some liquefying of the dye. Since then, the proper name for the process became to be known as dye-diffusion, though this technically-correct term has not supplanted the original name. Many consumer and professional dye-sublimation printers are designed and used for producing photographic prints, ID cards, clothing, and more.

EMBROIDERY

Embroidery is the craft of decorating fabric or other materials using a needle to apply thread or yarn. Embroidery may also incorporate other materials such as pearls, beads, quills, and sequins. In modern days, embroidery is usually seen on caps, hats, coats, blankets, dress shirts, denim, dresses, stockings, and golf shirts. Embroidery is available with a wide variety of thread or yarn color.

SCREEN PRINTING

Screen printing is a printing technique where a mesh is used to transfer ink onto a substrate. A blade or squeegee is moved across the screen to fill the open mesh apertures with ink. One color is printed at a time, so several screens can be used to produce a multicolored image or design.
