Not sure how screen printing works? The experts of Global Signs and Printing explain the process.
What Is Screen Printing?
Screen printing is the process of directly applying ink to the surface of a fabric through the use of a stencil. Usually, the stencil is a simple piece of delicate fabric that has the image photographically transferred to it. Screen printing only allows one color to be transferred at a time, which is why the cost of a very colorful design may be a bit higher than a design containing only a few colors.
Why Should I Choose Screen Printing?
If you want your design to be vibrant, experts recommend having it screen printed, especially when you’re printing on dark shirts. Screen printing applies ink more thickly than other types of printing can, which helps to make your colors and designs pop.
What Kind of Items Can Be Screen Printed?
Most people turn to screen printing when they need matching work or sports team uniforms, or even for group or family vacations. Besides t-shirts and other apparel, printing companies are also able to screen print baseball caps, water bottles, koozies, and other promotional items.
