Inks can be mixed to closely simulate swatches from the Pantone Matching System. We keep a copy of both the Solid Coated and Solid Uncoated guides in our studio.
Once printed, the main type of inks we use are similar swatches from the Solid Coated book. The inks are slightly glossy and reflect a bit of light, so it’s not possible to simulate Solid Uncoated swatches with our current ink process.
Both the Solid Coated and Solid Uncoated books contain inks printed onto paper. Screen printed inks applied to textiles behave a little bit differently due to difference in the ink and the texture of the garment, so it’s important to note that it’s not possible to perfectly match a Pantone Swatch, only to closely simulate it with the different ink type. There are optical differences due to the variables between ink and garment.
Ask your Account Executive for more details when exact colour accuracy is a concern!
What is a halftone? Screen printing is a ‘spot colour’ process – this means that each colour is printed using a mixed ink, and each colour has its own screen to transfer the image onto the garment. Halftones are tiny dots used to recreate shades of an ink colour on press.
This is where the halftone comes in. A halftone is an array of different size dots which allows screen printers to simulate tonal variation when printing with a single ink on press. What’s the benefit? A halftone allows to use one ink colour in one screen, and approximate various shades of that ink colour. The eye blends these tiny dots into smooth tones.
For more information, please review our blog post – What is a Halftone in Screen Printing?
Flocking is a process where an adhesive is printed onto the garment, and a fuzzy flock powder is applied to the print, leaving a textured satin-y feel.
We do not offer this process at this time. At this time, flocking is suitable only for large quantities.
In lower quantities we recommend a heat-transfer product, like Siser StripFlock.
This has the same limitations on designs as regular vinyl. Smaller details can be touch to achieve, and designs are limited to a single colour.
Ask your Account Executive for more details.
Some retail environments are strict about labelling requirements.
While we do offer templates, we can’t guarantee that a Custom Care Label will meet any specific label requirements. We always advise to include at least the garment material and the country of origin.
A comprehensive Guide to the Textile Labelling and Advertising Regulations is available for reference.
We specialize in screenprinting plastisol inks only. We do not offer water-based or dye-discharge inks at this time. Each ink type has its unique benefits and limitations.
Plastisol ink is easier for our small operation to work with, and yields bright and opaque prints. Waterbased and dye-discharge inks can achieve super soft prints, but typically not as bright or easier to work with for smaller runs.
While plastisol inks cannot achieve as soft of a print, we specialize in striking a balance between a bright detailed print, and a soft comfortable-to-wear print.
We are aiming to expand into a wider variety of ink types in 2018 as we move into our new studio, but these processes are typically held to a higher minimum than plastisol ink prints, making them less economical for smaller runs than plastisol inks.
We only offer options that we can stand behind 100%.
We don’t recommend printing over seams, or zippers.
We do our very best to produce the best looking prints anytime we pull a squeegee. However, printing on or over any seams, collars, pockets, zippers or otherwise is subject to distortion, print imperfections, and/or other small inconsistencies.
The closer a print is to a seam or zipper, the more prone to inconsistencies it will be. We typically recommend prints are placed no closer than 1cm to a seam for best results.
We offer 40+ Stock Ink Colours for your project.
We can also mix a custom colour using the Pantone system. Custom colours are $35 per custom colour, per order.
No setup charges means pricing is simpler, so it’s easier to plan your project.
Setup charges can really add up, because they are usually based on the total number of colours in your print, and the total amount of print locations.
The ‘Setup Charge’ usually covers the costs of preparing your design for print, creating the screen for production, ordering the garments, and setting up the press for your print.
Your total price per piece is based on the print cost, plus the Base Price of the garment. No setup charges, ever.
Our pricing is totally transparent – no need to wait for a quote!
