Screen Printing is done by printing ink through a fine mesh screen on to a substrate. There are three key components in the process: art, screens, and the print. Each component is equally important. If one portion is not up to par, the whole project will suffer. We ensure quality by using high tension screens, the best printing equipment the industry has to offer, and our many years of experience in the industry.
The process begins in the art room. You send us your idea, and we make it a reality. Once the customer has approved their art on a virtual mock up, the design is then broken down into separate colors. This process can be fairly difficult depending on the complexity of the design, and this is where our years of expertise really shine!
Once separated the design is then burned to a screen via our exposure unit. The quality of the screen plays a very large role in the outcome of the print. A loose screen will not allow the clarity and color saturation that a high tension screen does. We've made the investment in the finest screens available to get the job done right and it shows!
After the screen is made it's time to print. We felt we owed it to our customers to use the very best the industry has to offer!
