ABOUT SCREEN PRINTING

Screen printing – in our use and application – is a print method that applies very thick ink to blank t-shirts (or other garments/apparel/etc).  This process takes a LOT of set up time.  However, once the printing has begun… you’ll need a few extra pairs of hands to keep up with the stacks piling high!  You’ll need GREAT artwork and layouts before any of this process can begin, and we’ll assume you’ve already approved your graphics with the Creative Team in order to begin production.

SCREENS

As in the diagram, the logo is blocked out with a liquid film that dries on the screen – which is very much like a stencil.  Then, we’ll print out the image In our shop, we actually burn the liquid to dry, and it leaves open your ‘stencil’ for the shirt to receive the ink.  Each color that will end up on your shirt will need its very own screen.  So, if you’ve got 6 colors going on your front logo and 4 colors going on your back – we’ll be prepping 10 screens with your designs.  

LINING UP THE ARTWORK

Once the screens have completed the setup process, it’s over to our automatic screen printing presses and manual screen printing presses.  We even have screen printed numbers and other items!  Each color must be aligned so your image comes out sharp, crisp and on point… so you can guess, this is sometimes a long (but fruitful) endeavor.

THE LOOK & THE BENEFITS

Aside from the cost benefits, screen printing offers an exceptionally valuable perk – VIVID & POPPING COLOR!  The colors you see coming out of a desktop printer or even our own Direct To Garment Printer will never be as full and saturated “Spot Color” inks from our huge selection.  Another perk?  Since the inks go on wet and then heat up, we are able to monitor the temperatures to ensure the “curing” has reached optimal levels on every single piece that leaves our shop!  This means that you’ll enjoy our shirts MANY more wears and tears in the future!
