Tradition and Excellence Come Together in Silk Screen Printing
Silk screen printing, also known as silkscreen, is a traditional method for transferring images onto fabrics which can now be delivered via the latest technology. What this means is that we can take any image you give us and reproduce it perfectly time after time after time, filling orders from one to a thousand and taking the same pride and care each and every time. We’ll work closely with you to decide exactly what the silk screen process can offer you and what the finished image is going to look like. Then we’ll set about delivering your order quickly and efficiently to a no strings price agreed up front.
What is Silk Screen Printing?
Silk Screen printing is a method which has been around for centuries, but which can now be utilised to deliver bulk orders via the latest silkscreen technology. The image to be printed is burned onto a fine mesh usually made of silk, nylon or stainless steel, which is held within a frame. The coloured inks being used are then passed over the screens, each one passing through a specific area of mesh and building the image via a series of layers.
That’s the technical explanation, but it doesn’t capture the reasons for using silk screen printing. The building of layers allows for the creation of precise, detailed and richly coloured images, meaning that the process of screen printing t-shirts, for example, can be used to create a genuinely stunning and artistically satisfying image.
The silk screen printing we utilise is capable of creating images using 10 high quality pantone colours on a single garment, and the fact that we have our entire colour range in stock constantly means that you’ll never have to wait for us to meet your order.
We use a state of the art M&R Sportsman printing machine, because, like logos4polos it sits at the top of the tree and offers the very best in silk screen printing. Technical details such as electric print heads, servo-driven indexers and multiple print-stroke capability are the kind of things that get our expert technicians rubbing their hands together in excitement, but what our choice of technology means to you is:
- Efficiency – orders turned around quickly without the slightest drop in visual impact. The technology we utilise means that, in some cases, we’ll be able to turn an order around on the day it’s placed
- Quality – silk screen printing that offers the rich colour and detailed imagery of a method which has lasted through centuries
- Value – minimal maintenance and low overheads allow us to pass savings onto you in the form of pricing structures which are clear and highly competitive
How it works
Put simply; you provide the image and select the garments, we do the rest. The technicalities of screen printing mean that the image you give to us has to be provided in a vectorised format, which means that the lines, curves and shapes of the image work in a manner which will allow them to be resized without distorting or pixellating.
Don’t be. An individual account handler will work with you from initial contact through to the end of the order, ensuring that the image is suitable for silk screen printing, that the colours selected will work with the garments required (a white background panel may need to be added to some darker garments for example) and that the finished product will be exactly what you’re looking for. We’ll even provide you with pre-production samples to put you totally at ease and, once started, every stage of the silk screen printing process will be handled by our in-house experts using our industry leading technology.
You don’t need to take our word for the quality and reliability of our silk screen printing service. The reviews on Trust Pilot are written by genuine customers only too keen to let the rest of the world know just how good logos4polos really are.
