Screen Printing

About Customized Screen Printing

Screen printing, also sometimes called silk printing, is a way or printing graphics on clothing. Thick ink is laid on top of the t-shirt or sweat shirt rather than soaking into it. Although there are more modern ways of adding custom graphics to your shirts or sweat shirts, most companies prefer to use screen printing to create bulk orders of custom apparel that has vibrant colors that pop, a soft texture, and durability.

The process of screen printing starts with a thin high-quality mesh screen that is stretched over a wooden frame. After covering it in a layer of emulsion, the negative of the custom logo or design is printing on the screen. The thick ink is rolled onto the screen and then set on the uniform, shirt, or sweatshirt which is lined up perfectly with lasers. The ink slips through the design on the screen and onto the fabric. The process may be repeated depending on how many colors there are in the design. The customized apparel is then carefully dried with the exact temperature to ensure it is dry but has not bled through.

Screen printing is completed from start to finish by hand. It is a work of art that continues to be the best way to produce quality bulk orders of customized t-shirts, sweatshirts, uniforms, and more!
