Screen Printing is one of the most popular T shirt printing techniques available in the Personalised Clothing industry. It’s a process that applies ink directly onto clothing and fabric using mesh screens. It is a great option for companies who need to produce promotional merchandise or personalised workwear with their exact brand colours.
In order to create the screen, artwork needs to be supplied in vector format (.ai, .eps or vector PDF) as each colour in the artwork is separated and a different screen is created for each colour that is to be printed. This is why screen printing incurs a higher set-up cost than other T shirt printing techniques.
The Process of Screen Printing onto Clothing:
Initially, the ink is mixed to the required Pantone colour reference and applied to the screen. Squeegees are used to push ink through the mesh of the screen and onto the garment. When printing onto dark coloured garments, a white layer or flash layer of ink is applied first and then the coloured inks are applied on top of this to ensure an accurate Pantone colour match. We can always screen print onto T shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts, polo shirts, tote bags and many more products and so we will be able to find a solution that meets your needs.
