Screen Printing Services
This T-shirt printing process has been a round for a long while. Screen printing mixes new technology for creating artwork by separating designs in to their component colours, while using traditional screens or stencils to build up the design one colour. Screen print produces very vibrant block colours as the ink is very opaque and has a slightly raised texture on the garment once printing, producing very striking T-shirts
The main ink we use is plastisol for a thick and bright finish and special options are available on request, such as metallic inks and neon colours. Our screen printing services have a minimum run of 50 units as each colour requires setting up first, but once this process has been done once there is no further set ups to pay on subsequent orders. There's also substantial discounts available on larger orders.
We separate your design out in to colours, using special software which creates a file for each one to be stenciled later. Once your artwork has been separated in to colours, we can put together a digital mock up on request, for you to view before we commence printing the garments, to make sure your absolutely happy with the colour and positioning of your design.
So here comes the science part; we print black ink on to clear film for each colour in the design. Then we lay that film on a mesh frame or screen covered in photosensitive liquid, which is then exposed to light. The light then hardens the liquid. Then the screen is washed out, which removes all the areas that were covered by the ink on the positive film, this then leaves the final stencilled design for that colour. Then we repeat the process with each subsequent colour. Finally we load the screens on to the machine and pull screen print ink through each one individually to build up the desired colours of the design on to the T-shirt!.
