Screenprinting is a technique that uses a woven mesh to support an ink-blocking stencil. The stencil forms open areas of mesh that allow the transfer of ink as a sharp-edged image onto a medium such as tee shirts or jackets.
Our printing operation is capable of spot prints to 14 colors, 4-color process and simulated process, and a variety of special effect applications including high density, gel and puff inks, iridescent and thermal change inks, water-base and discharge process inks to name a few.
We operate a combination of automatic presses and manual presses that provides complete flexibility to run smaller orders or high volume orders on a quick turn basis.
We screen print on many different items, including jackets, sweatshirts, and make your own shirt. Some of the top t-shirt brands we carry include: Hanes, Gildan, Anvil, Fruit of the Loom, American Apparel, Next Level, Threadfast and Bella.
Pricing for screen printed apparel is driven by several key factors:
Total quantity ordered
Number of colors in your print
Total number of print locations
Quality of the blank garment being printed on
Embroidery is another popular service we offer and is known for its professional look and classic appeal. This makes it a great choice for corporate, high-end private label, or collegiate apparel. Common applications of this process include polos, jackets, sweaters, sweatshirts, hats, and bags.
The first step in the embroidery process involves converting your artwork into stitches. This is a process called “digitizing” and it involves a one-time (digitizing) fee based on the total number of stitches in your graphic. A higher total stitch count merits both a higher digitizing fee and a higher price per embroidered location, whereas a lower total stitch count would make for both a lower digitizing fee and a lower price per embroidered location.
When putting together your artwork to be stitched onto the apparel or accessory of your choice, there are a few points to consider before submitting your design for production.
For an optimal result with your embroidered graphic, follow these guidelines:
Fold, Bag, and Label
With this service your garment will be folded and placed in a clear plastic poly bag. Individual unit labels are used to seal the poly bags. These labels vary in detail but can be custom tailored to your needs. They can range from simple: size indication only, to detailed: brand name, design name, size, website, etc. This finishing touch has become an industry standard for many apparel brands and is a great solution for simplified inventory management.
Screen Printed Tags
Neck label tags are directly screen printed inside your garments. These tags are superior to the industry standard heat-transfer tags due to their improved color fastness.
Typically these tags are installed under the neck tape or sewn onto a shirt’s bottom hem or sleeve. Woven labels are traditionally used to indicate sizing or just showcase a brand’s logo. This addition to a garment assists in legitimizing the product as “boutique-worthy” or “retail-quality”.
There are two common installation applications for private label apparel:
Their is an industry standard that many customers expect to find on hang tags on products. Hang tags can say a lot about your brand and greatly influence your customer’s purchasing decisions. If your tags seem cheap, this may inadvertently convey to customers that your products are substandard and your brand image could be ruined. Our Hang tags feature full color digital printing and are available in various sizes.
