Screen printing is a printing technique used to push ink through a mesh stencil to apply layers of ink onto the printing surface. Each color in a design requires a different stencil (or screen) to be made. Before printing can begin, the stencils (colors) must line up to one another. We utilize both manual presses and an automated press. Our automated press is incredibly precise and is capable of repeatable printing on thousands of garments a day. Even with digital printing on the rise, we believe that screen printing is still the best process for custom apparel.
Perhaps the most popular ink used in the garment printing industry. Plastisol inks are easy to print, are opaque on dark garments, and features great adhesion to most t-shirt, athletic jerseys, hoodies, and most textiles in general. This type of printing is also known as spot color printing.
Plastisol inks can be printed on many items that can withstand the heat required to cure the ink and is porous enough to permit good ink adhesion. Plastisol inks do not dye the threads of a fabric, the ink wraps around the fibers and makes a mechanical bond with the fabric. Screen printing plastisols will not adhere to non-porous substrates such as plastic, metal, wood and glass. They also will not adhere to waterproofed nylon material without adding a bonding agent/catalyst.
