Screen Print vs. Vinyl Transfers?

Small runs of custom shirts can be a difficult decision to make when it comes to direct screen printing or vinyl transfers. Typically vinyl is the fastest way, but the detail of the art will ultimately dictate the best method to use.    If you’re able to efficiently prep screens and clean up then always lean towards screen printing as aside from the labor there’s far less cost involved in screen printing.  Vinyl is a quick, easy and a clean method, but is quick and easy what you want to deliver to you customer, or does taking your time and delivering a higher quality item fit your company?
