Screen Printing in a nutshell

Method in which ink is applied directly to the surface to be printed (ie: t-shirt). The image/design is photographically transferred to a very fine fabric (the screen) such that the non-printing areas are blocked off and the fabric serves as a stencil. The ink is wiped across the screen to pass through the unblocked pores and reach the substrate. For each color to be printed a separate screen is prepared and the process is repeated.

Helpful Tips

Artwork

Your print is only as good as your artwork and in most cases a suitable vector file is required, especially when printing 2 or more colours.

Talk to us if you need help with your design or you only have access to a low quality file.

Budget

Set up charges are necessary to every screen printing order. If you only have a few garments to print then these charges can mean a very expensive order.
We recommend only printing 1 or 2 colours for low runs to keep your costs down. Or use an alternative like Heat Transfers.

Beyond t-shirts…

Tea towels, tote bags, unsewn fabric (for fashion designers), pillowcases and more...
If it has a flat surface and can withstand our heat dryers then chances are we can print it.
Keep in mind that we are unable to print over seams, zips and some textures.
