What is screen printing?
Screen printing (often referred to as silk screen printing) is the method of ink being pushed through a pre-prepare stencil into fabric to create the desired image and then cured through a dryer.
Why choose screen printing
Screen Printing is the most popular method for printing on tee shirts as it allows for a very light weight logo to be added to the garment, as well as being a popular option for large back prints seen on polos and hoodies. Screen printing is the most cost-effective method for large volume orders, or smaller orders if they require a 1 – 3 colour print.
Screen printing vs embroidery
Screen printing is favored over embroidery when printing on tee shirts (cotton), when the design is larger than approximately 15cm, and/or when fine details are involved.
