SCREEN PRINTING

Screen printing is a tried and trusted method to brand your uniforms.

You can print on most garments, including t-shirts, polos, jackets, bags and aprons, using this highly versatile printing method. Minimum quantities apply.

With screen printing, your logo is reproduced by squeezing inks through mesh screens directly onto your garments. A separate mesh screen is required for each colour in your logo so designs with many colours cost more than simple one colour designs.

The essential idea of screen printing is that a screen is created to stop the ink from being applied to the whole print area.  We do this by cutting out your design from the screen, which only allows the ink to push through this area.  There’s a whole lot of technical stuff that goes on to do this but we’re keeping it simple.

Once your screen is set up, we add the ink one colour at a time and pull it over the mesh with a blade or squeegee.  This pushes the ink through the mesh and onto the garment.  We have to ‘flash cure’ each layer of ink before printing the next colour.  Once all of your colours are printed, your shirts go through our tunnel dryer to ensure your print stays intact for as long as possible.
