Various methods or techniques are available for printing shirts and other clothing but the process is dependent on application. For clients seeking large orders for printed garments, screen printing – also known as silkscreen printing – offers a cost-effective solution combined with longevity of product.
Silkscreen garment printing also offers relatively high-detail imaging that embroidery techniques may not achieve simply due to the size of threads used. All garment designs, whether for embroidery or silkscreen projects, are stored on our in-house servers and can be used at any future time for re-orders or changes to a client’s corporate theme.
In the screen printing method, individual screens are used in the process. Each screen is cut as a stencil for the design. Ink in the desired colour is then applied over the screen, passing through to the item below only where you want it except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil.. Only one colour for each screen, so depending on the number of colors in the design, multiple screens may be necessary to produce the final item.
Depending on your requirements we can utilise both embroidery and silkscreen techniques on a single printed garment in order to maximise effect.
