Frequently asked questions
Screen printing is a direct printing technique derived from stencilling. The process uses a silk screen whose very fine mesh is blocked in some places and open in others so that the ink only passes through where it is needed to reproduce your artwork. With the help of a squeegee, the ink is pushed through this screen to be deposited on the medium to be printed.
This very popular method allows only one colour to be printed at a time. Therefore, several screens must be used to reproduce a multi-coloured visual. After printing, the item is placed in a drying tunnel to fix the ink.
Screen printing is used to mass print garments and accessories of all types of textiles (cotton, nylon, polyester, etc.). This technique offers a quality result with excellent colour retention, even with repeated washing.
It is therefore the perfect solution for a cost-effective and long-lasting product.
Screen printing is possible on all types of textiles, from natural fabrics (linen, cotton, silk) to synthetic fabrics (nylon, polyester). However, for optimum quality and durability, we recommend that you use 100% cotton.
We require a minimum quantity of 20 pieces to start a screen print. This technique is therefore particularly suitable for the mass production of customised textile products.
This stencil-derived technique allows a printing of 1 to 8 colours in solid or 4-colours (CMYK).
The cost varies depending on the number of items and the number of colours you wish to print. As this price is degressive, this technique is very advantageous for the production of large volumes!
