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

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.
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
