Offset Litho and Heat Transfer can both print digital images on non woven fabric. Both printing methods can print directly onto non woven fabric without lamination. People will normally think unlaminated non woven fabric is more eco friendly. I have another article explaining the reason and benefit of printing without lamination.
Herebelow are the differences of Offset Litho and Heat Transfer we need take care of:
|printing technology||Offset Litho||Heat Transfer|
|Cost of Mass Production||cheaper||more expensive|
|Cost of Sampling||much more expensive||cheaper|
|Printing Area||much more expensive||small|
|Limitation (if printing directly to non woven fabric, no lamination)||print onto white non woven fabric only||any colour of non woven fabirc can be printed|
