Screen Printing

          • Best for large orders

          • Best value

          • Can be printed on any material

          • Long Lasting

Screen printing is one of the methods we use for printing your designs onto our shirts. Screen printing is the same basic process as using a stencil, except instead of coloring in the parts of a stencil bit by bit, the entire image is prepared and pressed onto the shirt at once. Creating the stencil takes a lot of time, but once it is done many shirts can be created quickly (quickly if it’s a manual press, quicker if it’s automated). Given these facts, we use screen printing for our larger orders.


1- Long Lasting

Due to the composition and thickness of inks used in screen printing, designs placed with this method can withstand far more stress than others without losing the quality of the print.

2 – Big Order Friendly

Since this method requires the fabrication of screens for every color used in an artwork, it is best reserved for large orders. The more garments placed in an order, the cheaper the cost per unit will be.

3 – Great Finish

Screen printing produces vibrant colors that are hard to replicate by other printing techniques. Techniques like direct to garment (DTG) use cyan, magenta, yellow and black (CMYK) dots to recreate their images. While it is an excellent method to replicate details, it usually pales (literally) compared to screen printing.

4 – More Ink

Screen printing allows for a greater thickness of the ink than other techniques, which results in greater possibilities for the piece’s finish.

5 – Versatility

It is hard to find a printing method as versatile as screen printing. It can be done on almost any surface as long as it is flat, fabric, wood, plastic, and even metal, among many others.

6 – Straightforward

It is a fundamental process that does not change regardless if it is automated or done by hand. The tools are not hard to replace and will not become obsolete as fast as other technologies.


1- Not Practical For Small Orders

As we already mentioned, screen printing needs more prep than other techniques before going into production. The extra setup time does not make it suitable for “on-demand” printing, which is the creation of a garment as soon as it is ordered.
