Screen printing is a traditional decoration process that involves pushing ink through a woven mesh stencil onto a garment's fabric. The small openings in the screen creates the space through which the ink will go to create the print. The ink is then pushed through the mesh by a blade or squeegee. As the ink is pushed through the mesh and onto the garment, the design is printed on its fabric.
With screen printing as your print method, something to keep in mind is that only one ink color can be applied at a time. Therefore, with each ink colour that you add to your design, the setup time and associated costs rise. An individual screen needs to be created in advance for each ink colour which means that it takes the same amount of time for setup whether we print 1 or 1000 shirts.
