Screen printing is a printing technique where a mesh is used to transfer ink onto a substrate. It is an extremely economical printing process when printing medium to large volumes of garments. There are limitations and things that need to be considered before a job can go to print. The following information will help explain how it works.
Setting Up Artwork:
To get designs screen ready, we use Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop to render artwork, create colour separations and add registration marks. It is important to set up artwork correctly before sending them over to us. A well-prepared file means we can work more efficiently. If artwork is not sent to us in the desired format, an extra artworking fee may be charged.

Print Size & Location:
Working out the final size and print location is crucial to getting the desired result you are after, and it's really helpful for us too. The devil really is in the detail and the more information you give us, the more likely it is you'll get the results you're after.

Inks & Additives:
We hold a variety of ready mixed stock colours. But if you need a specific shade, we use an ink mixing system that produces colours and shades from the Pantone Solid Coated colour book.

There are literally thousands of blank garments to choose from. Choosing one to suit your taste and budget can be challenging. Fortunately, we have a selection of go-to brands that we have tried and tested for quality, printability and cost. See below for our recommendations. Samples can be sent out to you on request.
We also allow you to supply your own blank garments. However, 1x extra of each size must be supplied on top of the final quantity. This is to allow for testing and any potential misprints that may occur during the printing process.
We also have the following range of speciality inks and additives:

We recognise the importance of putting the finishing touches to a product in order for it to be retail ready. That’s why we offer bespoke re-label, swing tag and fold & bag services. There are a range of options available to suit your needs:
Custom neck label prints are a good way to give your garments a professional look, whilst keeping within budget. They also have a softer feel on the neck. This process is done in-house, so no production lead times.
Woven labels give that classic look to a garment. If you require labels to be sourced, we can assist by using one of our suppliers. There are usually 2 - 3 week lead times to produce them and minimum order quantities apply. You’re also welcome to provide your own.
If you’re intending to sell your products online or in store, professional tagging will be the final piece of the puzzle. You can provide your own and we’ll attach them to your garments, or we can source them for you.
Folding & Bagging:
A professional folding and bagging service will ensure your product stays clean, dry and eliminates odour contamination. We’ll also attach sizing stickers to help you identify the garments. Biodegradable bags are used.
Our print to order service allows you to sell designs without outlaying any production costs, dealing with fulfilment and customer services. It’s a hassle-free, zero waste merch selling service. Get in touch for more information.
Arranging professional looking product shots to go on your website or catalogue can be really tricky to get right. We can lighten your workload and take care of this process for you. Get in touch for more information.
There are other decoration processes and merch add-ons that we can assist you with. Please get in touch, if you would like more information.
