Silkscreen

This is the most popular way to get custom shirts made for large events or if you looking to start up your own clothing line. Screen printing, also commonly referred to as “Silk screening”, is the process of pushing ink through a screen with your design onto a garment. Tee shirts is one of the most common garments used. Pricing depends on quantity, number of colors, and size of design. Pricing as low as $2.99 including the t-shirt FOB San Diego. Call us so we can discuss your customized order.

Screen printing is mainly used for high volume orders, due to the time it takes to set up the screens needed to print. Each color in the design requires its own screen. Depending on the color of the ink and the color of the garments, there may be a flash base, or a white “under coat”. This will cause the colors printed to come out more vibrant as if they were printed on a white garment.

For proper color separation, it is best if a spot color image or vector format file is used. Many vector formats include .AI, .EPS, and .PDF files. If your file was created in Photoshop, it would be best if each color is set to a spot color, and they are each on their own layer. This will ensure proper and accurate color separation. Providing higher resolution designs is important when working with certain files, as having low quality files may fragment and corrupt pixel data, resulting in a poor quality separation. The minimum resolution for a file should be at least 300dpi, and sized to the actual size to be printed.

Any designs that require color separation, or if you can only provide image files (.JPG, .PNG, .BMP are some examples) then manual color separation may be required. As this takes time and fine adjustments, a fee may incur to set up your design for color separation.
