Silk Screen Printing, one of the more popular and commonly requested fabric printing technique used to customized Tee Shirts, Caps and other apparels… It is known for its unrivaled printing quality that are durable and with colours that does not fade easily.
The reason for the durability is because it uses the stencil method. The added pressure from the squeegee forces the ink into the fabric where it absorb and integrate into the fabric. Making the imprinted graphics and images hard to wash away or when respond to physical contact.
The printing size can be done from as a small area over a pocket to the entire front or the back of the Tee Shirt. Thus, it is often used to print images that require covering large area of the Tee Shirt such as A4 and A3 sizes.
How is pricing determined in silkscreen printing?
Pricing is based on print design’s number of colours used and size of the print. As the initial set up cost is the same for printing E.g. 1 or 100 pieces. Thus, it is cheaper to print in in larger quantities from 100 pieces onwards.
