Silkscreen (or screenprinting) is the most economical garment decorating option, especially for larger designs with multiple colors. Most commonly used on t-shirts, bags, towels and other products with a flat surface. Products are printed, using a separate screen for each color. Light colors printed on dark products usually require a base coat, underlay, or flashing to prevent the color of the product from bleeding thru the printing.
You will be charged a set-up for each color print, in each location. Typically $40 for each color for apparel. The application charge is based on the number of colors, and the number of items being printed.
High resolution, camera ready artwork is required. Vector art in Adobe .ai or .eps formats work best, as they can be scaled to size. We can use most .jpg, .tiff, or .psd files if they were created in at least 150 dpi at the size you want printed or larger. Pasting a low-resolution image into a high-resolution file does not make it printable, nor can you simply increase the resolution on a low-resolution document. If you cannot print it on your printer in the size required in a quality that is acceptable, chances are we can't either.
We can have your artwork professionally re-drawn for you. Most designs will cost $40 to $100 for a re-draw in a vector format. We always provide you with copies of the re-drawn files for use on other projects as well.
Usually about 2 weeks.
