Frequently Asked Questions

Screen Printing is a printing method that involves applying inks directly onto the garment.

Once we have finalized your finalized artwork, Norb, our talented print technician, prints the design on to a clear film. These films are used to expose a screen coated in light sensitive emulsion (using a UV exposure unit).

After these exposed screens have been rinsed and dried (one screen per colour), they are mounted on a screen printing press and a squeegee is used to pull the ink across the screen. The screen is sort of like a stencil, letting ink through in some places and blocking it in others.
For screen printing, we do have a minimum charge of $150 to cover the cost of printing films, exposing screens and mounting the press.

The per unit price will really vary depending on the detail of your order, so the more specific information you provide us with, the more accurately we will be able to quote you.

We offer Waterbased, Plastiol and Special effects screen printing inks, and can print multiple colours on our presses.

We have hundreds of colours ready to be custom-mixed for your creations. We do Pantone matching, too.


Screen printing is a beautiful and traditional way of reproducing art with vibrant, saturated colour and crisp, sharp lines BUT screen printing is not a digital reproduction. There will always be small variations and differences between the prints due to the hand-printed nature of screen printing.

We have a four station, 6 colour manual screen printing press. However, not all artwork is appropriate for screen printing. Generally, screen printed designs are 1 to 3 colours.

Ideally, we receive your artwork in a vector-based format, fonts outlined, sized as you would like it printed.

We can accept Adobe Illustrator files (.ai), Photoshop files (.psd), or editable PDF files (.pdf).

Screen printing: vector file with any fonts outlined is required

We print a variety of textiles (tea towels, tote bags, t-shirts) as well as on paper and other materials. Take a look at our portfolio to see our work – we love a challenge!
