In order to make our fantastic, customizable clothing, we use a method called print screening. But what exactly does that mean? Here’s what you need to know about our process to make the awesome shirts you love.

What is screen printing?

Screen printing or silk screening, is a printing technique that creates a sharp-edged image using a stencil and ink. It’s called screen printing because the process originally used a silk screen. Nowadays, synthetic fabrics are typically used in the screen printing process.

Why is it done?

This technique is often used for printing designs onto t-shirts, posters, and other fabric items. It can also be used on non-porous surfaces like plastic, metal, and glass. We use it to create amazing designs on all our clothing options.

How does it work?

A screen is placed on top of the item to be printed. The stencil is placed on the screen, and ink is pushed through the screen onto the item. The ink only goes through the areas of the screen that are not blocked by the stencil, creating the design.
