Big Cat Carolinas chooses the best production method for your order and thus will select between screen-printing and digital-printing to complete your order. Both methods result in the same, 7-10 year lifespan. Factors which are considered are quantity, number of colors, complexity of artwork, lead time required, cost, availability, etc. If you prefer one method over the other, email us and let us know and we will price your order accordingly. Here's a brief explanation of the major differences between screen-printing and digital printing.
