Screen printing is a printing technique whereby a mesh is used to transfer ink onto a substrate, except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil. ... One color is printed at a time, so several screens can be used to produce a multicolor image or design.
The minimum order for screen printing is 12 pieces. The average order takes 7-10 business days. Rush orders are accepted and available for an additional fee.
Good clear high resolution or vector artwork is best for screen print. When you zoom in on the artwork on screen it should appear crisp with clean edges free of pixellation. We can create artwork if you, or clean up you existing file- for an additional fee. Our current standard print size is 13 x 16.
The most popular ink used in the garment printing industry is Plastisol ink. Screen printing plastisol ink is easy to print, does not dry in the screen, is opaque on dark garments, and features great adhesion to most t-shirt, athletic jerseys, hoodies, heat transfers, and most textiles in general.
For printed ink colors, we use a standard set of inks that match the digital colors used for proofing. Do realize that everyone’s computer monitor will display colors a little differently so you may see some variation from the proof and final physical shirt print. PMS color matching is available and priced based on the amount of ink needed.
Vintage / Soft Hand Printing
A very popular technique for lightweight garments. We can get that vintage "semi-transparent look" with a soft hand feel by utilizing a special base with our standard inks- at no extra charge to you.
The washability of properly cured direct and transfer prints are excellent. When washing, it is always recommended that the garment be turned inside out. Dry cleaning is not recommended. Do not iron the printed part of the garment.
