Screen Printing

Screen printing is one of the oldest methods of printing, and has been the standard method of cloth and garment decorating since it was invented in hundreds of years ago.  Screen Printing is a 'per colour' print method, which means for each colour in your design, we need to make a separate printing screen for that colour.  Thus, the more colours in a design, the more the design will cost.   Because of this, we divide our printing price list into two catagories;  "Setup" which is the process of separating your art, creating a film which we can then use to make a physical printing screen. And "Printing" which is the process of printing the actual garment, weather it be a t-shirt, longsleeve or sweatshirt ect.   Printing charges are based on the number of colours to be printed, the number of locations to be printed, and the total number of garments to be printed. From a small print to an oversized full shirt print we can do it all.

Screen Printed Shirts can be great for fundraisers, teams, special events, family gatherings, festivals, uniform shirts or anything you would like to see your name on.


Direct to Garment Printing

This process of printing onto cotton based fabrics like T-Shirts using a large format specialty printer. We use water based inks that are directly printed onto the garment. It has a softer hand feel compared to screen printing and unlimited number of colors including photo quality prints. A great option for small quantities and best for cotton garments


Sublimation

This process offers full color fine detail onto specialty designed line of products. This process offers full color fine detail that is printed onto specialty transfer paper using specialty inks. The paper is then placed onto specialty prepared items and transferred using pressure and heat process of 400 degrees.

The sublimation process offers full color fine detail and is done using a specially prepared transfer onto the prepared item using heat and pressure. This transforms from the solid state on paper to a gaseous state immediately bonding with any polymers present in the final product to give a permanent image, for clothing and flags. The final product must have a high percentage of polyester to bond properly. On mugs and hard goods the image appears to be inside the glaze and cannot be felt. (Due to the heat process it is not recommended to use in a dishwasher.) T-Shirts can be washed as usual, ironed, stretched etc. This process uses a specially prepared line of products or polyester clothing. It works best on white or light colors. A few ideas are Basketball back boards, mugs, coin banks, plagues, can cozies, dog tags, tiles and so much more.


Glow in the dark

Get your design in a glow in the dark print for Pub crawls, safety, security or just something super funky and cool. This process can also be added to a regular screen printed logo for an even more unique look. This shows a white print in the day or under normal lighting conditions and is changed to a solar charged florescent green glow at night or under black light.
