Screen Printing Process
Screen printing is a printing technique that uses a woven mesh to support an ink-blocking stencil. The attached stencil forms open areas of mesh that transfer ink or other printable materials which can be pressed through the mesh as a sharp-edged image onto a substrate. A fill blade or squeegee is moved across the screen stencil, forcing or pumping ink into the mesh openings for transfer by capillary action during the squeegee stroke. Basically, it is the process of using a stencil to apply ink onto another material.
This method can be used to craft really nice print artworks for t shirts and other custom clothing types. This becomes a costly process for small batch sizes. The reason is whether it is a single unit of garment or 10000 units of garments the effort for preparation of screens ( Stencils) is the same. However, when the batch size is large this method becomes a cost-effective method for printing compared to many other decorating formats.
Total number of colors
We print your design using screen printing technique. This requires a separate screen for each color which will be printed. More colors mean more screens and higher manufacturing costs. To keep costs down, designs could be color reduced to use fewer colors in the final manufacturing set up preferably one color print )
