Design your own bandanas: how to start?

Before we start talking about printing techniques and types of bandanas, the first thing before design your own bandanas is to have an artwork ready to print. It’s essential to know what we want to print onto the bandanas, since it’s not the same to print a picture than a single-colour text.

The artwork it’s the first step before asking a quote, choose a bandana model and proceed to the printing.

Screen printing vs All Over Print

As a general matter, the design determinate which printing technique is the right one to use, unless we look for a particular finish for our bandanas.

Screen printing is very cheap but in bandanas and neck tubes we can only use a few flat colours, without gradients or complicated details. A single colour text or a simple logo are perfect to make screen printed bandanas.

The full print has no colour limit and can be used on the entire surface of the tubular tube neck or bandana, getting high resolution results. The printing budget is higher, but it’s very worthwhile if you want to reproduce all kinds of pictures or patterns.
