Hi =)

Just a quick answer to your question on what the actual difference is between screen printing and heat pressing.

With screen printing, your graphic is put onto screens and then the ink is pushed through the screen directly onto the tshirt (for example), leaving your design on it.
With heat pressing, you create a transfer (either viny, plastisol or sublimation methods available) which is essentially a piece of paper with your design on it. This is then place on the tshirt and a heat press is used to press the design onto the shirt using a combination of heat and pressure.

Hope that helped!
