Kamloops Screen Printing Services - January 13th 2016
Screen printing, also known as silk screening, is the process of applying ink to a garment through a fine mesh screen. This process of custom decorating garments is most commonly used for t-shirts, sweatshirts, sweat pants, tote bags, etc…, where the logo can range in size from a small placement on the chest or arm to a large placement on the center chest or back. Commonly, there is a minimum printing charge or 12 items due to the extensive effort that goes in to screen printing.
First off, the artwork is digitally separated by the number of colors. Each color will result in its own screen. Next, each separate image is placed in to position on a fresh screen with a light sensitive emulsion compound, and is exposed to ultra violet light for a set period of time. This process sets the screen.
Each screen is placed on to the machine and is meticulously set in to the exact required position. Once the screens are ready and in position, the screening process may commence. Ink is passed through each screen and transferred to the garment. The garments are dried for the required amount of time and there you have it, they are ready for the customer.
