Silk Screen Printing involves creating a stencil which we call a "screen".
This method involves the transfer of ink through a mesh screen onto your garment. We can print your design up to 13” wide by 19” long and on other placements such as sleeves and pockets. Our minimum for screen printing is 12 pieces.
Screen printing is the best printing option to use on T-shirts, especially dark T-shirts. This printing technique involves the application of layers of ink on T-shirts. It is suitable for T-shirts that require high vibrancy levels since thick layers of ink are usually applied.

How Do I Wash a Screen-Printed T-Shirt?
Follow these steps when washing a screen-printed T-shirt.
- Separate your T-shirt from other clothes such as jeans. Also, ensure that you separate dark T-shirts from light T-shirts.
- Turn your T-shirt inside out to ensure that the printed ink does not rub against other fabrics when put in a washing machine. Turning your T-shirt inside out will also help you ensure that the T-shirt retains its quality.
- Put the T-shirt in a washing machine or a basin containing water. You should ensure that you use cold water when washing this T-shirt and a mild detergent.
- After you are done washing your T-shirt, dry it outside. However, ensure that you do not dry it under direct sunlight.

What Kind of Screen-Printing Ink Do You Use?
We use plastisol ink when screen printing on T-shirts. This ink is versatile, thick, durable, and easy to mix. It also helps ensure that graphic details are clear. And, most importantly, it’s available in a variety of colors so feel free to go crazy with your design!
How Do You Make Sure Designs Print Accurately on Dark Garments?
We always ensure that designs on dark garments pop by applying white ink on the areas that the design will be printed. This ink ensures that colors pop since this ink serves as a primer for the other colored inks.
Do You Offer Water-Based Inks?
We offer water-based inks when requested by customers. This ink is just as good as plastisol ink. The difference is that water-based ink seeps into T-shirts rather than sitting on top of them the way plastisol ink does.
All Screen Printing Eventually Comes Off When T-Shirts Are Washed, Right?
Screen printing does not come off when you wash your T-shirt. It can withstand about 50 washes since the ink that we use when screen printing is thick. Therefore, it is less likely to fade away when you wash your T-shirt.
Screen printing is mainly used to print on T-shirts. This process involves the application of thick layers of ink on T-shirts. Plastisol ink is the most commonly used ink when it comes to this printing technique.
