How does screen printing work?

Screen printing is a traditional technique that has been around for many years. In this process, a design is transferred onto a mesh screen and then a squeegee is used to push ink through the screen onto a garment. One color is printed at a time, so several screens are needed to print a multi-colored graphic. Our equipment has capabilities of printing custom designs up to 6 colors.

Advantages of screen printing:

  • Vibrant ink colors
  • Exact ink color match to maintain consistency
  • Thicker ink output sits on top of fabric for lengthy durability
  • Can be used on wide range of fabrics
  • Cost effective for bulk orders

We suggest allowing 7-10 business days for production after artwork and pricing have been approved. At times, our schedule may allow for jobs to be printed quicker. Please give us a call and we can work with you!


Vector files are best for screenprinting use. Please ensure all fonts are outlined and each color is set as a spot color. We also suggest having your design set at the size to be printed.

Preferred file types are:
(.ai) – Adobe Illustrator vector format
(.eps) – Universal vector format
(.pdf) – Universal vector format
(.cdr) – Corel Draw vector format

These file types may require additional design fees if artwork needs to be recreated.
(.psd) – Adobe Photoshop layered format
