Screen Printing is a process in which colors are separated within an art file and applied individually to the namesake "screens."
Think of these as specialized stencils made to accommodate all kinds of inks and garments.
Once we have all our screens produced, they go on our full-scale industrial printing presses where your job is taken over by our talented team of printers. Your garments go around in a loop where each color is printed through it's respective screen to create a full-color imprint.
Each garment is inspected for misprints or damage prior to packing to make sure you're satisfied when you receive your order. We take great pride in our ability to produce both large-scale and small-scale jobs without compromising on quality.

We have lot's of ink options to stylize your garments!
Plastisol (Standard)Plastisol inks are plastic-based and are the most versatile inks used in screen printing. This ink sits ON TOP of the fabric, creating a feel that can be modified for a super soft hand or made to have a heavy hand depending on the desired effect. These inks can be printed on cotton, polyester & blended fabrics.
Glow in the DarkGlow in the dark inks are a type of specialty plastisol ink used for enhancing a design that needs to be seen at night or in the dark. The color is a lot like anything that glows – it’s an off white, light greenish colored ink used mainly as a special effect.
MetallicMetallic ink is a specialty plastisol ink that has tiny metallic flakes in it. When printed, this ink creates an eye catching, shimmery finish. Metallic inks are intended to be applied with as an accent to a design because the metallic flake additive makes for a thicker hand and is slightly stiffer than standard plastisols.
FoilFoils are a cool fabric decorating method growing in popularity. The appeal of foil is that it is highly reflective which can really make your designs pop! Foil should be used creatively but also conservatively considering how much they bling.
Water-basedWATER BASEDWater based inks have a super soft feel with outcomes that serve specific purposes. In a nutshell, these inks soak INTO the fibers and dye the fabric during the heating /curing process. After washing, this ink is completely unfelt and is the most breathable way to have a design embedded into the fabric of the shirt.
