So how does Screen Printing work? Thin mesh fabric is stretched tightly over a frame and a negative of your design is printed onto it. Once it's lined up on our machines correctly, ink is pushed through the mesh screen. Only the areas where the design has been printed will allow ink to slip through and onto your shirt. Then it's run through a dryer to cure.
To be honest, it’s a lot more complicated than that. There are a lot of separate chemicals, inks, and techniques that go into making your shirts, but that’s the jist. If you're looking to have apparel printed with us, the part of the process you'll be most involved in are the first two; design and apparel choice. We'll handle the rest!
The first part of the screen printing process starts with design. To ensure that your prints come out the way they are intended we'll need to be sure that your art work meets our spec minimums.
If you are unable to provide us with vector artwork please be sure your artwork is between 200-300 dpi at the height and width you would like it to be printed at. If you're unsure if your artwork meets our requirements please feel free to reach out to our in house designer (firstname.lastname@example.org) who would be more than happy to help with that.
We offer artwork conversion services if your design doesn't meet the minimum requirement, or we can also help you design something from scratch if you have an idea and would like to take action. Please inquire for a quote.
There are limits to how big we can print and where exactly we can print but all of that is covered in our standardized sizing and placement guide which should be available to view on the site soon.
We price all of our jobs off of your specific needs. You won't find standardized pricing here and that's a good thing. We are able to offer you the best price we can by taking into account all of the details of your job. If you are curious about your cost to have specific items decorated, please reach out to us with your needs and we can send over pricing!
