The Myth of Digital Printing.

I had a revelation the other day.

After hearing so much about the flexibility of digital printing I tried it out on the website.

Being a long time user and fan I had been experiencing a frustration with being unable to use flex and plot printing to deal with fine details.

I must say designing a t-shirt with a fine splatter effect and more than 3 colors was a liberating experience. But the process is not the fairy tale I'd been led to believe.

It works great on white, but printing on color has a tint problem, and using designs on dark and light apparel requires the creation and uploading of two different images.

I personally missed the ability to change the plot color of a design on the fly.

I would say despite it's promises it still falls quite short of plot printing.

Stick with spreadshirt the quality of the product and service is better.
