San Antonio Digital Custom T Shirt Printing

Digital Custom T Shirt Printing

Direct to Garment Printing (aka DTG printing or Digital T-Shirt printing) is the latest method of printing on t-shirts, fleece, and most types of fabric using dedicated inkjet technology. DTG printing utilizes highly specialized, water-based inks that print directly into the fiber of whatever fabric is being printed. Our three state-of-the-art Brother GT782 printers are capable of printing to any color fabric by printing a white under-base when needed (similar to conventional screen-printing) before printing in a 4-color-process format. A white under-base is not required on white fabric as well as some lighter color fabrics.

DTG printing offers many advantages over screen-printing including live pre-production computer previews as well as the ability to print intricately detailed images either as a one-off sample or in volume. This approach to printing offers our clients a very cost-effective method of printing any quantity. It also carries a huge advantage over screen-printing as far as setup charges are concerned. There are no color separations, films, or screens needed for DTG printing thus reducing pre-production charges to next to nothing. This represents a huge upfront cost saving to you.

Digital T-Shirt Printing or Screenprinting?

People often ask if Direct to Garment Printing printing will ever completely replace conventional screen printing. In my opinion that does not seem likely in the foreseeable future. Instead, DTG printing will stand alongside screen printing as a valuable and viable option for those clients and those projects that require this unique style of printing.

Our ongoing involvement with Direct to Garment Printing printing will continue giving us the opportunity to impress artists, advertising agencies, brand managers, museums, and a wide spectrum of clients with our ability to offer extraordinary quality, custom services, and professional accounts management.

THE DIFFERENT STEPS THAT NEED TO BE TAKEN IN LAWSUITS

THE DIFFERENT STEPS THAT NEED TO BE TAKEN IN LAWSUITS

What Is Subrogation?

If an insurance company pays some of your medical or other expenses arising from your injury, the law provides “subrogation” which means that the insurance company stands “in your shoes” and can recover from the liable party some or all of the amounts paid on your behalf. If this is the case, they usually are required to pay their proportionate share of the attorney’s fee and costs in connection with the recovery. This is handled on a case-by-case basis.

WHAT SHOULD I DO ABOUT MEDICAL LIENS?

Some of our clients are involved in an accident where there is no medical payments insurance, worker’s compensation or private health insurance. In such cases, your doctor will expect to be paid by you at the conclusion of this case. Often they will require you to agree, in writing, to have us pay them directly from the proceeds you receive. State laws sometimes permit health care providers to file a “lien” which must be paid out of the proceeds of your case. If your doctor asks you to sign what is often called a “lien letter”, be sure to contact our office. In some cases, it may not be appropriate for you to sign such an agreement.

WHAT IF I CHOOSE TO FILE BANKRUPTCY?

If you are considering filing bankruptcy, you should know that you may lose all rights to your personal injury case. The Bankruptcy Court can take over your case, settle your case and give your settlement money to your creditors, and you will receive nothing. Be sure to talk to your lawyer before filing bankruptcy.

WHAT ABOUT CLAIMS THAT ARE FILED AGAINST THE GOVERNMENT?

Any injury claim, whether it stems from a car collision or other event that involves the government, is subject to special rules. The governmental entity involved may be the state, a city, a county, local government, or the United States. Generally, a Notice of Claim must be filed with the appropriate governmental agency very soon following your injury. If you believe that the government may be involved in your case, please notify us immediately.personal injury law

Orthodontics – Do You Need Braces

Getting braces has become incredibly common; at least among middle-class 1st world countries, getting braces is almost a kind of rite of passage. Since early orthodontic treatment is the best way to treat malocclusion or misaligned teeth, this is most often when it happens. There is no clear, all-encompassing theory of why teeth don’t grow in straight in all people, but most orthodontic scientists feel it has to do with genetics, meaning none of us to have much control over it, at all. For something that we can do nothing to prevent, malocclusion (the medical term for crooked teeth) has a tremendous effect on our psyche, which is why braces have become so common. Although it does present actual functional issues, in some cases, mostly the problem with malocclusion is simply that it makes people afraid to smile, and that puts a serious damper on their self-confidence. Nobody wants to feel embarrassed every time they smile, and certainly, nobody wants that for their kids, so people flock to orthodontists by the millions, every year.invisalign braces

But orthodontic treatment has changed quite a bit, over time. As with most medical treatments, it was once much more basic, and primitive, but now has reached a higher level of technological proficiency, and integration with new technologies, like computer software. Especially for adults, who typically would prefer not to have ugly metal braces on their teeth, advances in incognito types of braces have made this a better time to see the orthodontist than has ever been. Even for kids, though, smile correction has made leaps and bounds and does its job better than it ever has.

One way that orthodontist’s methods have improved is in the area of diagnostics. The primary method for diagnosing malocclusions is x-ray, and this technology has improved a lot over the years. In olden times, the flat, negative photos that were obtained with x-rays gave the orthodontist only a cursory idea of what was truly going on in your mouth. Now, with conical CT scans, it’s possible for orthodontists to have a much greater level of accuracy and understanding of the bone structure of your teeth, jaw, and lower skull. These scans, which use x-ray to scan in a conical shape, give your orthodontist a 3D computer representation of your skull, that looks like CGI from a movie. With this, they can see exactly what is going on with your teeth, and exactly how best to fix it.

Once an assessment is made, your orthodontist may only find it necessary to treat you with spacers, retainers, or other removable tools, if your malocclusion is not severe enough to warrant braces. However, this is very often not the case, and braces are frequently found to be necessary to give you the smile you really want. Braces use interconnected brackets, which attach to the surfaces of the teeth, to maneuver your teeth into a better, more aesthetically pleasing position. They usually have to be worn for several weeks or months, and periodically adjusted, meaning trips in to see your orthodontist every couple of weeks.
bracesA number of advances have been made in the world of braces, many of them geared towards adults seeking some form of invisible braces, for obvious reasons. Most adults do not prefer to have the same extremely obvious and prominent metal braces worn by children. To address this desire, orthodontic innovators have created several variations on the approach of braces, that don’t have such a negative effect on appearance. In some cases, they are very nearly invisible. There are braces that simply use different materials, the most popular being clear and ceramic braces, which blend in better with the teeth, and then there are lingual braces, which hide behind the teeth, by attaching to the backs of the, rather than the fronts. These are all great options, all still just different types of braces.

There’s also another option, that is an alternative to braces, called Invisalign aligners. Aligners are like clear plastic sheaths which fit directly over your teeth, one for the top row, and one for the bottom. They are basically invisible, like a clear laminated layer over your teeth, and have the added convenience of being removable. Invisalign aligners accomplish the same goal as braces, but by surrounding your teeth with a plastic casing, rather than attaching to their surfaces. Each pair of Invisalign aligners is custom printed using scans of your teeth, by your orthodontist. New aligners then have to be printed every 2-3 weeks.
