Screen Printing; also known as Silkscreen Printing; also known as Serigraphy: also known as Serigraph Printing. Whatever name you know it as we specialize in it.
Surprisingly the entire process starts with a screen (who would've thought). Our screens are a finely woven mesh stretched over a aluminum frame. The mesh comes in different sizes like 150, 195, 230 or 320. Those numbers represent the amount of holes per square inch on the frame. This allows us to print various designs from block letters to fine details.
Once we have our screen selected, we then coat it this magical liquid called emulsion (insert suspense here). Emulsion is a light-sensitive liquid that hardens when exposed to UV light. Once the screen is coated in this stuff and air dried, we take our film positives that block specific parts of the screen from UV light and place them on the screen. Once the emulsion is exposed to the UV light it hardens and can only be removed with a particular chemical, but the parts that were protected by the film positive are easily washed out with water. Viola, we have a screen that's ready to print.
After that, it is just our printer lining up all the individual colors of the design and printing it!
Machine Embroidery can be as simple as adding a name to a hat or creating elaborate patterns on patches. It’s an unique art form tailored to you and your brand's style.
We start with digitizing your logo or design and import it into our embroidery machine. From there, our machine takes the design and brings it to life. The digital file contains the design and all required information for rendering the design on the fashion item, including thread color, types of stitches and stitch parameters. Our computer-controlled machine can embroider on garments like hats, t-shirts, polos, backpacks, blankets, and jackets. From casual everyday clothing to formal attire, embroidery can be applied to suit many needs and styles. The possibilities are limited only by your imagination!
With direct to garment printing, you have the ability to put any image from your computer onto a shirt. Direct to garment printing uses digital technology to print directly onto high quality blank garments instead of using ink on paper or a transfer method that requires additional processing. Think of it as a giant inkjet printer but for shirts.
Without the need to stock large amounts of inventory and have massive equipment we can get your product out quickly and efficiently! Direct to garment printing allows brands to add their own design and customize the garment specifically how they'd like it printed. Benefits include unlimited colors, a soft feeling print and amazing details! Direct to garment is a really great option for our customers who need smaller quantities than our minimum order requirements for screen printing.
