Screen Printing


Screen Printing

Screen printing is a tried and trusted method to brand your uniforms

You can print on most garments, including t-shirts, polos, jackets, bags and aprons, using this highly versatile printing method. Minimum quantities apply.

With screen printing, your logo is reproduced by squeezing inks through mesh screens directly onto your garments. A separate mesh screen is required for each colour in your logo so designs with many colours cost more than simple one colour designs.

How Screen Printing Works

Screen printing is a traditional stencil method where your artwork is printed by pushing inks through a stencil on a mesh screen directly onto the garment. Your logo or artwork has to be separated into solid colours and a separate mesh screen is prepared for each colour in your artwork.



THINGS TO CONSIDER

  • Best choice for large orders with a large print area.
  • Ideal for branding on pockets or seams.
  • Not as durable as embroidery - if you wash and wear your garments regularly, embroidery may be a better option.
  • We require high quality files of your logo/artwork. We accept AI, EPS, PDF or JPG.
  • Colour combinations are limited. Maximum number of printed colours is usually six.
  • Screen printing can only be applied to flat surfaces.
