Screen Printing

Background:

Screen Printing - also called Silk Screen Printing or Serigraphy was first invented by the Chinese over 1000 years ago and with modern updates, remains one of the most versatile methods of printing.

It is by far the most durable method of printing onto cotton and many other substrates. In a liquid state, we force the ink deep into the fabric fibers, then we heat the ink fusing it to the fabric, forming a strong flexible bond.

Although there have been many new digital developments, in most cases Screen Printing still outdoes them in quality, cost & durability. This is why 99% of cotton t-shirts worldwide are still Screen Printed rather than printed digitally.

Method:

The method of screen printing is essentially the same as you may have done in art class at school but on a commercial scale using the best quality state of the art products & machinery. If you order is under 100 items, your job will be printed manually, with a person pushing the ink through the screen. If your order is over 100 items, it will likely be printed by one of our large automatic screen printing machines, where the ink is pushed through the screen by the machine.
