our company screen prints
that means the ink is pressed through a screen mesh onto and into the fabric. it is then heated to 325 degrees, which cures the ink and creates a bond between it and the fabric that it has been printed on. the ink that we use is very durable, that means you can usually feel it on a light colored shirt and it is really thick on a dark shirt.
typically one of our shirts will last well over a decade. so after about ten years the fabric should start to break down around the printing - making the ink the only thing that holds it together. but that's years and years of washing, not a couple of months!
things to keep in mind for your screen printing order:
- the more things with same art (same sized art and colors) the better your price.
- dark garments cost more, due to their manufacturing costs and the longer time it takes to print them.
- in printing, everything is about how many colors per side, which really means - how many screens your job has.
