Default Is it possible to print TOP NOTCH quality Shirts with screenprinting?

We bought an Apex UV printer, but its very so-so to print with it on shirts... so we're looking for other alternatives.

We would like to produce really high quality (4 colours would be enough though), something that would also, obviously, last for a long time. Can one really achieve this with screen-printing?


We would really appreciate any pointers or suggestions, as we don't really know much about the scope, or broadness of the quality that this method is able to produce...

Thank you so much for all your input, and well, maybe a Yes. or a No. would suffice



Cheers,
Peter

many printers have been producing high quality long lasting shirts for a long time with screen printing.

I agree with Kenneth.
In my opinion, the best results as well as longest lasting, would be from screenprinting.
Of course, with good technique, good artwork, fully curing, etc...
hope this helps.

Yes, screen printing is pretty much the default method for producing the type of quality t-shirts you're talking about. Most t-shirts you see in stores are screen printed.

Screenprining, and Dye Sublimation hold up the best if done right. They are starting to mess with a discharge in place of the white ink for DTG.s The colored inks are still the same, but theoretically, If an image is DTG printed with just the Disgarge clear, it should hold up in the wash just like the screenprinted.
