Screen print

The process

Screen printing has been around for a long time and is the traditional none-digital method of printing. We create a stencil of each separate colour and expose that with photosensitive liquid on to a mesh frame ( or screen ) which holds the stencil.

We then pull the ink through each screen in turn, to build up the colours of the design. Due to the way the process works, it does require a set up charge per colour. As such it lends its self to ethier large runs or designs with less colours.

Screen printing is best suited to larger runs, if you require less than 50 units, DTG printing is more cost effective.



Advantages and limitations

As this process has a set up charge for every colour, it is more cost effective the more you buy. So any job less than 50 units are not advisable. This process is best suited to block colours and produces a very vibrant print with solid ink coverage. But it is not recommended for photographic prints or complex colour gradients which would be better suited to a digital print.



Artwork submission

Ideally provide vector artwork where possible ie .AI .EPS .PDF etc. We may also be able to use high res raster artwork like .PSD and will try to convert that at no extra charge if possible.
