Digital Hybrid Printing: Infinite Possibilities

It’s the secret to making every shirt unique.





WITH VARIABLE DATA, digital hybrid printing allows for every shirt to be unique. For this series, the data set permitted for approximately 7000 different prints to be made with the same screen-printed underbase. The common elements were the face, flowers, and neckpiece, overprinted by DTG using a hybrid printer. Each shirt was completely different than the next, yet together their similarity conveyed a unified brand story.
