Screen printing is a technique that uses a woven mesh screen with an ink-blocking stencil to apply ink to a garment. The design is imposed onto the screen which is attached to a machine. Each color incorporated into the design is printed with its own screen. Several screens may be used to produce a multicolored design.
ADVANTAGES: Screen printing is considered more versatile than other printing methods. Using this technique offers customers the opportunity to produce a high quantity of garments without ink color restrictions. Any color shirt, light or dark, can be used.
DISADVANTAGES: Due to the extensive setup process, orders being placed must have a minimum of twelve shirts per one design. Any changes to the design or ink color may result in additional charges.
