Screen Printing

Online T-shirt Screen Printing Services

This is the most traditional form of printing. It produces the highest quality results, but it's expensive set up costs mean it's unlikely to be suitable for small quantity orders. You can use this technique to print onto almost any type of garment BUT you can't use any type of artwork. Designs which use gradients, shades and complex colours - such as images or photos - are not recommended for screen printing.

The higher the quantity, the lower the price - it really is as simple as that. Prices also increase for additional colours used in your design and when printing onto dark coloured garments (please be aware that to ensure a high quality print, an additional ink base layer is required). Screen printing produces a rough finish, but it is the most durable - this makes it the ideal technique for events and promotional giveaways.
