There are many options and processes to take into effect before into producing a piece of apparel. It is our goal to educate you about those options so you can decide on the best option for your apparel. Screen print, also known as silk screen, is one of the many styles of apparel decoration we offer to our customer.
What is Screen Printing?
Screen Printing is a process that utilizes a framed mesh screen in conjunction with an ink-blocking stencil to print a desired image on a t-shirt or piece of fabric.
Screen printing is usually the best when you are printing more than 24 shirts, want a high level of vibrancy, are printing on dark shirts, have multiple locations, or would like specialty inks. The ink in screen printing is applied thicker than digital printing, which results in brighter colors.
At Vadeal Print we have multiple presses to handle small to large orders. Depending on the size of the order, we will make use of either our manual or automatic screen printing machines.
