We operate a full screen printing shop. We have a high focus on getting the job done right, and recommend the best quality garments and most suitable process for each order.
When printing large quantities, screen printing is the most economical choice. The more shirts you order, the lower the cost per shirt. But keep in mind, every colour in your design requires a new screen to be made-the more colours in your print, the more costly your job becomes. We print with industry standard plastisol textile inks.
Screen printing allows us to print on a wide variety of garments with the same design: t-shirts, hoodies, tanks tops, sweatpants, tote bags and more! You can also add high-end effects and embellishments to further customize your apparel and create something more unique. Custom apparel with metallic or specialty inks (HD, glow-in-the-dark) are next-level branding!
Screen printing is your best option when you are looking for a long lasting print. When properly cared for, custom printed apparel will last as long as the garment itself! To help maintain the life of your apparel: wash it inside out, use cool water and avoid harsh cleaning detergents. Using a low temperature to dry or even hanging to dry will help preserve your new favourite tee!
Single Color Printing for Simple Designs
Screen printing a single color onto a garment is the easiest form of screen printing. Typically, the artwork will be a simple design or even just text. Since it is only one color, only one screen is needed for the design. Going with a single color for your artwork is the most inexpensive route for your print.
Multicolor Printing for Detailed Designs
Some artwork requires more than one color to get the job done. For example: Maybe your artwork is very detailed and requires various colors or maybe you just need multiple colors to match your branding. This option can be more expensive because it is more complex, but the finished product will definitely impress. If you are designing with a budget, our Product Specialists can review your design and discuss color options to make sure your apparel meets your expectations and matches your budget.
GRAYSCALE HALFTONE Color Printing for DETAILED Designs
Screen printing a grayscale halftone color onto a garment is the awesome detail form of screen printing. Typically, the artwork will be a potrait design. Since it is only two color, gray and white for underbase is needed to the design.
FULL COLOR SEPARATION Printing for REALISTIC Designs
Sim process is a screen printing technique that can achieve a more photo-realistic print for designs with lots of detail or gradients. Photo-realistic designs are often created with DTG (Direct to Garment) printing, but we can also simulate the look of digital printing with screen printing using sim process. One advantage of sim process is the ability to use a small amount of colors to create the illusion of many. Contact our Product Specialists if this is technique you are interested in using for your order.
HIGH DENSITY PRINTING FOR 3D EFFECTS
HD (High Density) ink is a 3D effect created by a special process that causes the ink to puff off the shirt. A screen printer combines the ink color with an additive that creates a chemical reaction when exposed to heat. Try out HD ink if you are doing a multi-color order. It’s a great way to make one color pop out from the rest.
METALIC Printing for EXTRA SHINE TO YOUR Designs
The metallic inks we offer are liquid gold and liquid silver. Using metallic ink can add a bit of extra glitz to an extra special design. If you still want a touch of gold or silver, but are looking for a more affordable option, old gold, light gray or steel gray are great options. To get quotes on using metallic ink in your design, contact our Product Specialists.
glow in the dark printing with the lights out
We offer glow-in-the-dark ink for screen printing on your apparel. In the light, the ink will appear invisible. But when you turn the lights out, presto! That layer of ink will shine! That’s what makes glow-in-the-dark ink perfect for nighttime events.
DISCHARGE INK FOR A SOFTER FEEL
Screen printers use discharge ink on darker garments for a softer feel. This happens because discharge printing uses water-based ink, which removes the dyes in the fabric. This causes the desired ink color to take its place. Speak to one of our Project Specialists if discharge ink printing is something you are interested in.
