Printing methods we support
Screen Printed T-Shirts
Screen-printing is a process where a design, drawing, or other format is converted to film, and the film is then used to produce a stencil on the screen. The inks are then transferred through the tiny dots in the stencil to achieve the desired result.
This process involves exact pressures, specialized inks, and heat curing that result in a long lasting design. Screen printing has a high detailed setup process to ensure the best quality print. The costs of this method is in the set-up process. So the more colours you have the higher the set-up costs. However, with this printing process comes a professional product that can be washed without fading. This method is ideal for large quantity customers looking for a professional and durable finish.
