What is Screen Printing?

When a garment is created using the screen printing method, mesh screens are used in the process. Essentially, this screen makes a stencil for the design. Plastisol ink is then pushed through the screen with a squeegee, passing through to the object underneath specifically in the areas you want it to be.

A screen needs to be prepared for every color in your art and sometimes on dark garments you need a screen for a base or primer layer of ink. 

When only a simple image or logo is desired for printing, especially in large quantities, screen printing is a MUCH more sensible option for production. Due to the cost and time to prepare screens there is a 24 unit minimum on all orders.

Screen printing can be done on almost any garment and many different types of promo materials. Maximum printing area is 20" wide by 24" high.
