Understanding the Screen Printing Process

Understanding the Screen Printing Process

Sometimes, understanding the screen print process can be a little tricky. We wanted to make it easier for you so we broke it down with this graphic!

Let's say our in-house graphic designer, Heather, created this design (she did!) and wanted it printed on a tee shirt, we would:

1. Make sure the art is a vector file or can be made vector
2. Call out the Pantone colors (the ink colors we will use when printing)
3. Select a size for the art to be when it gets printed


Special Note: Each time Heather puts color in her design (in this case she has 3), we have to make a brand new screen. That's why the fewer the colors, the lower the price!

Now, are you ready to get your own design screen printed?
