Screen Printing

Why consider Screen Printing?

Most Cost Effective.

When printing large quantities, screen printing is the most economical choice. The more shirts you order, the lower the cost per shirt. But keep in mind, every colour in your design requires a new screen to be made — the more colours in your print, the more expensive your job becomes.

Different Print Styles.

We print with plastisol or water and discharge inks. However, you can always add high-end effects and embellishments to further customize your screen printed apparel and create something truly remarkable. Custom apparel with metallic or specialty inks are simply eye-catching.

Long Lasting Prints.

When your top priority is a print that lasts, screen printing should be your first choice. Not only does it allow for the creation of high-quality custom apparel, it also produces durable, wearable results. Screen printing will last through many washes — as long as the garment itself!

Print Styles

Ink types and processes for every garment and style





Opaque/Plastisol inks provide the most economic and popular method delivering a durable and opaque print. Vivid inks are our most popular print method for screen printing. If you’re looking for a vibrant, affordable print — this probably your best bet.





Your distressed, aged designs look more authentic when printed with a lighter hand and more transparent inks. The result is a low-contrast print with a bit of the shirt colour showing through!





Metallic ink is a very popular option to add shimmer to your apparel. Printing metallic gold and silver on a t-shirt can be bold and if designed well, it can bring the art to life and make it really stand out. A base layer of white is required because metallic inks need a hard flat surface to adhere to — so it will be more expensive.





Puff is an ink additive which raises the print off the garment, creating a 3D feel. The ink expands when exposed to high-temperature heat as the garment is cured. It creates a distinctive three-dimensional texture, with no extra cost or set up.





CMYK is ideal for prints with lots of colours, like illustrations and paintings. Your design is separated into four colours and a screen is made for each. Similar to your printer, the combination of cyan, magenta, yellow and black can create a rainbow of colours.





Glow is an amazing special effect print style. In the daylight, our glow inks have a transparent appearance. If you want to see the full potential of this ink, expose it to at least 30 seconds of sunlight and then walk into a dark room. It glows like no other!
