Screen printing is the most common and economical method of t-shirt printing. For screen printing, one screen is made for each color in your design. Your design is then printed one color at a time. The finished design will have long lasting durability and vibrant color. A maximum of 6 colors can be printed using this method.
Our screen-print pricing is based on the number of colors and the number of locations to be printed. Quantity discounts are available for orders of 100 t-shirts or more. Call or visit our showroom to experience the Embroidery Solutions advantage today. Get a Quote
Our pre-production specialists inspect all files and designs to ensure the artwork is satisfactory for a clear printing on the finished product.
A film positive is created by electronically separating each color in the design onto individual pieces of film.
The film positive images are developed using LED lights into a screen mesh that is used as a stencil for each color.
The screens are then aligned on a press with ink colors that match the original design. The ink is then pressed through the stencil with a squeegee which prints the design onto the garment color by color.
The shirts are then processed with a heat dryer to permanently cure the ink and improve the durability of the imprint.
It really will depend on the amount of ink in your logo/design and the number of locations to be printed. Please inquire to see what our minimums are. Please be advised we can only do up to 6 solid colors.

A vector file of the art is needed for screen printing. We accept the following files: .EPS, .AI, .CDR. If you do not have your logo in one of these file types we can vectorize the image for you.
