WHAT IS SCREEN PRINTING?

An easy way to think about this is as a photographic stencil process. The most common method of screen printing is to create a stencil on a mesh screen and then apply layers of ink directly onto a product by stamping or scraping the ink on top of the stencil, transferring the logo or design to the print surface underneath. The result is the screen’s image transferred to the print surface, except in the areas that are impermeable to the ink. The versatility of this decoration method allows it to be used on a wide variety of items.


Benefits

• Most cost-effective decoration method for larger custom apparel orders.

• Just about any design and ink color can be applied to any product through screen printing.

• Ink is applied thicker than digital printing, making your design more vibrant and easier to see on darker fabrics or surfaces.

Cons

• You may incur additional fees for more than one color.

• Less cost-effective for smaller orders due to extensive set up.

• Screen printing uses a lot of water and is not considered environmentally friendly.
