Screen printing is THE traditional method for printing on t-shirts.

Screen printing is very versatile and works well on an almost  limitless variety of garments like hoodies, long sleeves, tote bags, and  sweatpants.

Pricing is determined by the number of ink colors required to print your design and the number of locations the garment will be printed in, such as the front, back, or sleeve.

We take the greatest care in creating each stencil and choosing the right ink application through rigorous testing before we begin printing your project, so that each and every print we make for you looks absolutely perfect. While this printing technique has been around for a very long time, technical advances have been made available such as automated print heads which improve print quality, and industrial inks which are designed to offer vibrant color, consistency, and long lasting durability.
We maintain a commitment to using the best printing equipment and screen printing inks and it shows. After the shirts are printed they are run through a conveyor belt under heat for a designated amount of time which dries the ink and creates a strong bond with the fabric resulting in a print that will last the life of the shirt.

Special techniques

We utilize a variety of ink additives that allow us to produce rich, vibrant prints, or very thin, “soft hand” prints for a lighter feel. We also offer some unique printing techniques that set us apart from our competitors. Process printing is taking a photgraphic image and creating a 5 color version that, when printed using color halftones, can reproduce the same continuous tone image on a dark t-shirt. We also offer discharge printing; for this process we use a waterbased agent loaded with or without pigment that, when printed on the shirt and cured, creates a chemical reaction that replaces the dye of the shirt with a color. The result is a super bright print that is as soft as the shirt itself.
