Silk Screen Printing.
This process is how fabric has been printed for thousands of years. Ink is pushed through a silk screen with a rubber squeegee. The ink penetrates the weave of the fabric and forms part of it. In the majority of cases the ink has to be heat cured and made wash fast in high temperature conveyor driers. This process is only really suitable for shirt quantities in excess of 12 because of the cost of making a silk screen and generating the artwork.
This process has hardly changed in hundreds of years apart from technology taking over. From the Victorian lady sat in her chair producing 'samplers' in an embroidery hoop through to today's multihead computerised machinery. Designs have to be digitised to make them suitable for embroidery. If you have your own custom logo there are relevant set up costs and this is only suitable for more than 8 shirts. Alternatively choose from one of our 3,000 stock designs and add your own lettering. Minimum order 1 garment.
This process is very versatile and is often viably more suitable for small quantities of shirts because it does not usually generate the set up costs associated with silk screen printing or custom embroidery. It is also very flexible and can be used to apply logos or lettering to items that otherwise might not accept a direct screen print.
