What is Screen Printing?
Screen printing, also known as silk screen printing (or silk screening) is a method used to print graphics on garments including tee shirts, pullovers, and certain bags. In our Dallas, Texas based screen printing facility we use two types of inks, plastisol and water-based inks. Each type of ink has pros and cons relative to the event or use of the garments being printed on - we can help you decide which is the best to use! Due to the manufacturing process, screen printing is the most economical printing option for bulk orders. In our screen printing facility in Dallas, Texas we often work on the following projects:
Employee tee shirts, hoodies, etc.
Event based tee shirts, hoodies, etc.
Basketball team tee shirts
Baseball team shirts shirts
Retail tee shirts (designed and printed for resale)
Plastisol Screen Printing
The most popular ink used in the garment printing industry is Plastisol ink. Screen printing plastisol ink is easy to print, does not dry in the screen, is opaque on dark garments, and features great adhesion to most t-shirt, athletic jerseys, hoodies, heat transfers, and most textiles in general.
Water Based Screen Printing
Waterbased ink (water based screen printing) is a type of screen printing in which the pigment (color) is held in a thick liquid that is based on water, instead of a plastic based liquid like traditional, or plastisol, ink. It works great on white and lighter color shirts, but because it is not opaque, it does not work well on darker garments.
How Much Does Screen Printing Cost?How much does screen printing cost? Good question! Silk screening is a manufacturing process much like anything else. Every print job requires screen burning, ink mixing, and art set-up time - all before the shirts are even printed! Simply put - the more pieces you buy, the cheaper each print is.
