What is a screen printing meaning?

Screen-printing is a process where ink is pressed through a mesh screen onto a textile or paper surface. A separate screen is required for each colour in the design, so the fewer colours, the less it costs to print. All work is made by hand and thanks to that we achieve one of a kind look and artisanal finish of every print.

printing option one

1 Colour Print

Single colour prints are the most popular and affordable choice for fashion and promotional t-shirts. This is due to a quicker set up of one screen, which also reduces the final print cost. Still, one colour doesn't mean just flat block of ink. It could be more intricate like a monochrome photograph.

printing option two

Split Fountain Special Effect

Split fountain printing is a technique that allows two or more colours to be printed in one pass to achieve gradient or rainbow-like effect. For this type of print will apply 'One Colour' price list. Due to the nature of the colour mixing only certain colour combinations work well. We are happy to advise on this.

printing option three

2 Colours Print

Requiring a set-up of two individual screens, one for each colour in the design. To make this colour layers happily meet up in a right spot we have to use printing carousel. Still, this is a hand process and some characteristic imperfections might occur. If your design requires 3 or more colours please message for a quote!
