  1. The graphic designer takes your approved artwork and it is then color separated
  2. The graphic designer then creates a separate film for each color in the present artwork
  3. Each film containing each color is then exposed (UV light) onto a prepared screen
  4. The screen printer takes the completed screen or screens, depending on the number of colors, and slides each into a manual or automatic press
  5. The screen printer then places each color of ink on the top of each screen. These colors have to be selected by the screen printer and sometimes have to be mixed. The more colors used the longer the printing time
  6. Next, a squeegee (rubber blade) is used to push the ink evenly through the screen onto your textile product
  7. Finally, your silk-screened item is then place through a dryer, folded, packaged and shipped to you

Please note that printing on dark textiles require a white under base that has to be flashed (heat dried) and then all the other colors are printed on top of this. Light textiles require no under base and take less time. Due to this, prices are based on the number of colors and quantity ordered. Please contact one of our sales representatives to receive a quote.
