Crooked Brook Prints Custom T- Shirts for Chef Waldy Malouf’s Newest Restaurant ‘High Heat’ in NYC
Chef Waldy Malouf, Co-Owner/Chef of Beacon in New York City reaches out to Crooked Brook to print the t-shirts for his newest restaurant called “High Heat”. Malouf, a 1975 graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, has over 30 years experience in developing and managing successful food and beverage operations.
Crooked Brook has been asked by Waldy Malouf, Co-Owner/Chef of Beacon in New York City, to print the t-shirts for his newest restaurant called “High Heat”.
The t-shirts are Sand, Gildan, G200 6.1 oz. Ultra Cotton® T-Shirt made in 100% preshrunk cotton. The High Heat logo will be printed large on the back of the t-shirt and a small locomotive will be printed on the left chest.
Although the most popular method of printing t-shirts is screen printing, Crooked Brook t-shirts are printed using Direct to Garment Printing (digital garment printing or DTG) which is the process of using inkjet printers to print an image directly onto t-shirts without the use of screens like with screen printing, which requires a lot of setup e.g., creating screens for each color.
In addition, DTG printing uses eco-friendly, water soluble ink, unlike some screen printing methods that layer Plastisol (a suspension of PVC particles in a plasticizer) on top of the t-shirt. The only requirement for DTG printing is for the image to be high resolution, resulting in photograph quality printing with no setup fee or minimums for custom t-shirts.
