Reasons to choose Screen Printing

If printing garments in bulk is what you're after, then probably screen printing will be the best way to produce them. This is a technique which requires time to set up the machine and create the screen(s) but once these are in place, the production process is rather quick.

The quality of a screen print is also hard to match. The prints are crisp, smooth and long-lasting (sometimes up to 20 years). These are the reasons that make screen printing so beloved by professionals in the T-shirt printing business.

Whilst there are setup charges and minimum order quantities, the price per unit is the lowest overall.

When to choose screen printing

  • When you need to print 50 or more units. For less than this, we’d recommend a different technique. Like DTG, for example.

  • Your design consists of only 1 to 4 colours. Remember that every colour is a different screen so costs increase exponentially whenever we add one.

  • Different sizes do not increase costs. The pricing of screen printing is calculated by design and number of units but not type. This means that you could order 50 garment different sizes or colours as long as the print stays the same.

  • You can potentially screen print any garment but it works like magic on T-shirts.

The T-shirt Screen Printing process in 6 simple steps

Step 1

First, create the design. It is important to keep it simple as screen printing is not compatible with colour gradients and small details.

Step 2

Through a photo emulsion process, the design is transferred to a screen (A different screen must be created for every colour in the design).

Step 3

Place the garment under the screen. The screen is covered with the corresponding ink (the more the better) and spread evenly throughout.

Step 4

Manually or not, the squeegee then pushes the ink through the screen mesh, allowing the substance to only go through where it allows.

Step 5

If the design has more than one colour, then steps 3 and 4 are repeated for every tone. Different screens must be created for each, as well.

Step 6

After the design has been applied, it is left alone so the ink can dry and set on the fabric. Sometimes a special drying mechanism is used.

Basics to prepare your artwork

At Least 300dpi

If you ensure that your artwork is at 300dpi, at the desired print size. Then you can guarantee that it'll be at a high enough resolution to print.

Text to Outlines

If you convert all text to outlines, then we won't have to relocate any fonts, so they'll be as you designed them for print.

.ai or .eps File

Vector based files (e.g. Adobe Illustrator files) work best for us, as they have no loss of resolution, no matter how big you scale up the artwork.

Screen printing is a versatile technique that can be used by individuals as well as an automated process. It is practised professionally by designers, artists, and manufacturers who personalise their own clothing. But on the other side, also high-quality printing machines can do it. What is important here is that in both cases, the process is always the same, the human factor being the only difference. So what are the advantages of automated screen printing UK? Well off course it cuts down production time significantly thanks to larger screens, drying systems and rotatory screens for continued production. One tip from the experts on screen printed T-shirts: The less colourful your design are, then the cheaper the price will be. The explanation for this is that this technique doesn’t allow for more than one colour to be applied at the same time using the same screen. If you want to print using this technique there are some benefits you should know. First, screen printed designs can withstand far more stress than others due to the thickness of the ink. Second, it is big order friendly. Third, it has a great finish and produces vibrant colours and details exactly as you want them. And last but not less important, it can be done on almost any surface and type of garment. On that note, at Printsome we also enjoy being honest, so let’s also talk about the disadvantages of screen printing UK: It is expensive when you have a design full of colours. It’s not environmentally friendly because it wastes a lot of water when mixing inks and cleaning the screens. It could also at times be more complicated than others because it requires more steps in its process. Now let’s talk about the delivery options we offer. Are you in a hurry?
