Gives excellent quality, long-lasting results and is the most cost effective way to print custom designs for large volume orders.
This process involves pushing ink through a woven mesh stencil onto fabric. A separate screen is needed for each colour in your design therefore the fewer colours, the less it costs to print. It’s better suited to artwork with spot colours as opposed to photographs or full colour prints with gradients.
We are capable of printing any design from simple athletic prints to highly detailed full color images and everything in between. We can screen print your design in up to six colors on both light and dark colored garments from t-shirts to bags to hats. For coloured garments a base layer is required to ensure the print is bright and vibrant. It is very popular method for producing personalised garments.
How does the screen printing process work?
1. Artwork Submission: To begin the screen printing process, simply submit your artwork to us in a high-resolution format (300 DPI). We accept files in JPEG, PNG, PDF, PSD, EPS and AI formats. 2. Artwork Review: Once we receive your artwork, our team will review it to ensure that it meets our printing requirements. We will then provide a digital proof for your approval. 3. Ink and Colour Selection: We offer a wide range of ink colours to choose from, including Pantone (PMS) colours. We will work with you to select the best colours for your design.
4. Screen Creation: Once your artwork is approved and the ink colours are selected, we create a stencil or "screen" for each colour in your design. 5. Printing: With the screens in place, we use a special ink to print your design onto the product. Each colour is applied one at a time. 6. Quality Control: Once the printing is complete, we perform a quality control check to ensure that the final product meets our high standards.
Our standard turnaround time for screen printing is 7-10 business days from the time of proof approval. Rush orders may be available for an additional fee.
