Screenprinting Customisation Process

Screen printing is a printing technique where a mesh is used to transfer ink onto a garment.

A squeegee is moved across the screen to fill the open mesh with ink, and a backward stroke then causes the screen to touch the garment momentarily along a line of contact.

This causes the ink to wet the garment and be pulled out of the mesh holes as the screen springs back after the squeegee has passed.

One colour is printed at a time, so several screens can be used to produce a multi-coloured image on selected garments.

Here are the screenprint processes :

Step 1 - The customer design is created through first generation artwork.

Step 2 - The screen is prepared by our operative where the customer design image is transferred to the screen membrane.

Step 3 - The emulsion is exposed to the screen membrane.

Step 4 - The emulsion is washed off, creating the screen stencil.

Step 5 - The Item Is prepared and is now ready for printing.

Step 6 - The ink is pressed through the screen onto the garment.

Step 7 - We package the product - once the garment is cooled it is then ready for packaging.
