Screen printing

A type of printing in which ink is pushed through a screen with a squeegee onto a substrate. Screens are made by producing positive, clear films of the customers' artwork and exposing the screen to UV light through the film on a vacuum exposure table. The screen is washed out leaving only areas that were exposed to the UV light. This process will work with halftone dots and shading, but it is more limited than offset printing due to the screen itself and the fabric it prints on. The best results are achieved with screen printing when the art work is composed solid areas of color. Complex web effects produced in Raster based design programs such as Photoshop do not usually transfer well if the image is made of millions of colors

Embroidery

A process in which we stitch your logo onto a garment using computerized embroidery machinery. Because this process uses needle and thread, the artwork is limited to solid designs. Though we can use many different colors in your design, we cannot reproduce any type of shading or halftoning.

We work step-by-step with clients to ensure we create the exact garment you envision. Even if you don't have a specific vision, we take that as an opportunity to apply our proven design skills. Every project we take on, whether produced in-house or outsourced through a select group of companies, is closely supervised.
