screen-print

/ˈskrēn ˌprint/

verb. gerund or present participle: screen-printing

WIKIPEDIA: Screen printing is a printing technique where a mesh is used to transfer ink onto a substrate, except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil. A blade or squeegee is moved across the screen to fill the open mesh apertures with ink, and a reverse stroke then causes the screen to touch the substrate momentarily along a line of contact. This causes the ink to wet the substrate and be pulled out of the mesh apertures as the screen springs back after the blade has passed. One colour is printed at a time, so several screens can be used to produce a multi-coloured image or design.

There are various terms used for what is essentially the same technique. Traditionally, the process was called screen printing or silkscreen printing because silk was used in the process. It is also known as serigraphy and serigraph printing. Currently, synthetic threads are commonly used in the screen printing process. The most popular mesh in general use is made of polyester. There are special-use mesh materials of nylon and stainless steel available to the screen-printer. There are also different types of mesh size which will determine the outcome and look of the finished design on the material.

WIKIPEDIA: 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 pearlsbeadsquills, 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.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FLAT EMBROIDERY AND 3D "Raised / Puff" EMBROIDERY?

Embroidery is the process of decorating fabric using needles and threads.  The two most common types are flat and 3D embroidery
 
Flat embroidery is the most common embroidery used, it is where the decorative stitch is applied directly to the cap fabric creating a flat design.  Flat embroidery can be used for the most intricate and detailed designs without distorting the image which makes it the most popular choice for embellishment.

3D embroidery or 3D puff embroidery is a technique where foam is inserted under the embroidery stitch to raise the surface of your design giving a three-dimensional look to your embroidery design.  3D embroidery is a cool effect because it can make a design really stand out on a cap.  Due to foam being applied underneath the embroidery stitching, the best designs for 3D embroidery are simple ones, like initials or alphabets which is why you often see one alphabet on the front of caps as it is difficult to maintain the details using foam when the text gets small.

 

Flat Embroidery:                                                                                           3D Raised Embroidery:

Vehical Decals and Wraps

WIKIPEDIA:  Offset printing is a commonly used printing technique in which the inked image is transferred (or "offset") from a plate to a rubber blanket, then to the printing surface. When used in combination with the lithographic process, which is based on the repulsion of oil and water, the offset technique employs a flat (planographic) image carrier. Ink rollers transfer ink to the image areas of the image carrier, while a water roller applies a water-based film to the non-image areas. The modern "web" process feeds a large reel of paper through a large press machine in several parts, typically for several metres, which then prints continuously as the paper is fed through. Development of the offset press came in two versions: in 1875 by Robert Barclay of England for printing on tin, and in 1904 by Ira Washington Rubel of the United States for printing on paper.[1]
