Design is the intention of your printing, the engine that will drive printing. When you rush into a manual impression, you invest yourself. The visual is important because it is a piece of yourself. This is an opportunity to go through the rally and show what makes you special as an artist. This is also a double task: a draw should be as accurate as possible to the original work, sublimating it, which can be paradoxical. To be printed, your drawing must be prepared. He will be entitled to beauty. Thanks to image processing software, such as Photoshop, or vector drawing, such as Illustrator, you can clear it and erase all problems when doing custom apparel printing. No more scratches, burrs, dots or curved lines. The stick or vector and your design will have the final “professional” look.
Features of custom apparel printing. The more you remove bumps, overflowing elements, spots, traces, the more, in your opinion, your drawing becomes closer to perfection. However, all these alterations I suggest you do them in moderation. What makes your picture unique, is it due to defects or roughnesses of it? I believe that perfection is fruitless, there is nothing mysterious about it. This is the very opposite of the concept of life. If you look at nature, nothing is born complete, species of animals or creatures evolve step by step. Your drawing looks like a living creature, which has its own characteristics. It stores in memory all the series of gestures that you performed to understand this. This is what makes this drawing yours. He reflects you. During the draw, other series of gestures will also be performed, also containing more or less minor irregularities that distinguish each impression from the next.
Your drawing does not have to be finished to be sublimated. You understand, I can’t tell you how to make the perfect visual for printing. Ten years later, I saw a wonderful example of visual effects transferred to the workshop. I sometimes regret the influence of fashion, the standardization of some visual elements, too beautiful, too clean and ready to eat. Beauty is not perfection.
This is stress. For example, artists often used elements in their compositions as the “golden section” or “dissymmetry,” because they always challenged perfection in their work. Do not succumb to standardization, ease and lack of questions. If everything is perfect, there is nothing more to say. Let your drawing be fertile. This is an opportunity among infinity combinations. Think of it as “the action of force in a delicate balance.”
Technique and technology that will be useful to you with custom apparel printing. How is the image transferred to the screen? What technological process? Sunstroke is the most mysterious step. This is the one where everyone enters the most in technology and chemistry. Sunstroke or plate making will turn our screen into a cliche and make it suitable for ink only in the right places. Until the 1980s, there were two types of industrial and artistic typographic printing. From now on, the industrial production of plates using a photosensitive emulsion has gone a step, because it allows you to accurately reproduce the original work and be able to have very small details (for example, grayscale image). We hold an art plate to teach technology to children or to make initiations, because it remains more limited in possibilities. You can hide the screen with a smooth pattern and draw a picture directly on the screen.
The “Elemental Principle”, exposed to ultraviolet rays, hardens, it clogs the fabric, and ink is not passed. The emulsion is protected from ultraviolet radiation, it is removed with water, it does not clog the fabric and ink. pass, this is the principle of “stencil”. Typhon is located on a coated screen during sunstroke and can block ultraviolet rays where it is desirable for ink to pass through a fabric grid. Technical principle The curing process is based on the principle of redox potential. In the initial state, the emulsion is rich in electrons and soluble in water. In the presence of salts and heavy metals, such as dichromate, and under the action of actinic light (ultraviolet for screen printing), the transfer of electrons from the emulsion to dichromate will occur. The emulsion changes its properties and, thus, becomes insoluble in water.
In our digital age, creativity is virtual. The creator moves away from the final work, because he no longer attends all stages of the project. Screen printing allows you to renew the connection between the idea and the final project. Maybe, like my clients, you came to study screen printing or print to rewrite this link with a specific material. Making a draw is an experience in itself.
