About The Screen Printing Process
For screen printed t shirts, silk screen printing uses stencils to transfer designs. It begins with a screen made of wood or aluminum. A silk or nylon mesh is applied which is surrounded by the frame. The ink applied penetrates through parts of the screen that aren’t blocked by the stencil. We employ this process as well as other processes to print garments.
We’ve been creating screen printed t shirts and apparel since 1995, so we have extensive hands-on experience, literally. Having this experience is important because after many years of printing, we’re familiar with the problems that some printed designs might cause, and can avoid those problems before they happen.
What this means for our clients is faster, more efficient turnaround times, and higher quality printing.
We also offer Direct To Garment (DTG) printing, Heat transfers, and other specialty processes. Please inquire.
