SCREEN PRINTING

With over 30 years of screenprinting experience, we have become expert at screen printing designs on garments, utilizing a wide array of imprinting technologies.

 

How does it work?

Screenprinting is the traditional method of printing t-shirts and has been around for many many years. Screenprinting is a good, cost effective option for larger custom apparel orders for corporate promotions, teams and business.

 

Traditional Screen printing is a three part process.

  • 1.  Colour Seperate artwork [this is the process of seperating each colour in your design using specific design Software]
  • 2. Create Film Positives [Once the colours have been seperated, film positives are printed, which are then used when exposing screens]
  • 3. Expose Screens. [Mesh Screens are coated with an emulsion. The positives that we printed for this design are then exposed [via a bright UV light],to create the screen.

 

Every colour in your design requires a seperate screen, so keep this in mind when you're designing your artwork, because every colour also add to the cost.

 

If you're looking for vibrant colours, specialt inks or require specific pantone colour matching, screen printiing is the answer. 

 

Screenprinting also has fewer limitationsin terms of what fabrics and products can be printed on. 

 

Though we have the capacity to print very large volumes, we are also able to accomodate smaller print volumes
