Making your ideas and logo's become a reality

Here we will discuss a brief overview of the process involved to make your custom apparel idea into an actual T-Shirt, as well as answer some "what is screen printing" questions and show how to make t shirt printing work for your artwork or design.

Preparing the art

It all starts with an idea, and making that idea happen is our passion. Whether you are making shirts for an event, reunion, team, company, or even launching your own clothing line, we will start at the beginning to make sure the goal is reached.

 

First comes the design, which you want to be as crisp and visible, which is what requires the first stage of planning.

 

  1. Decide on a wholesale T shirt color and style you would like to choose.
  2. Decide on a color for your design or logo on the desired shirt.
  3. Finalize artwork and prepare for color separation or print.

Color separating or making the film positives

Next comes taking the colors of the design after being loaded and cleaned up on the computer, and selecting the colors from eachother allowing the colors to be independant of one another. This is printed on a water-proof film positive up to 17 inches wide and 22 inches long. This film with the separated color will then be ready to transfer to a screen which will require one for each color in your design.

Making screens for the design

After the colors have been separated, now comes time for transfering the printed image on the water-proof film onto a emulsioned screen which then gets exposed similar to a photograph, releasing UV rays to create the stencil on the screen where ink for your shirts will get printed through. Each Color in your design will require one custom screen to be made for its color, or more depending on if an underbase is needed for the material you decide on.

Printing The Shirts

After the screens have been made, then they will be set up in the screen printing press and registered for Silk Screen Printing. From here your design becomes more than just an idea, its now your logo, custom clothing line, and much, much more!
