Should I use screen printing?

USAGE

If your logo or message covers a large area, is 1-4 colors and you are looking to produce a higher quantity of garments, screen printing is for you. Because of the intensive set-up, your costs are lower with a higher quantity, however, at ACME, you can mix and match your product to minimize your cost.

How should I send you my artwork?

TECHNIQUE

Original artwork must be in vector format. Each color is then separated and a film negative is produced. The film negative printout is then placed on a stretched screen coated with light sensitive emulsion and exposed to light creating the “screen”. The screens are then locked onto the framework and each screen is set on the garment and ink is squeegied onto the garment. Once complete, the garment is sent through a heat processor to “bake” the image onto the garment.
