Screen printing is a printing technique where a mesh or screen is used to transfer ink onto a material, except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil. A blade or squeegee is moved across the screen to fill the open mesh apertures with ink, and a reverse stroke then causes the screen to touch the substrate momentarily along a line of contact. This causes the ink to wet the substrate and be pulled out of the mesh apertures as the screen springs back after the blade has passed. One color is printed at a time, so several screens can be used to produce a multi-colored image or design.
The advantages of screen printing are many. You get very sharp-edged high quality long lasting printed images; The cost of screen printing can be less than any other large volume decorating like embroidery.
You can print on garment fronts, backs, sleeves, pockets, hoodies, hats. Even vinyl, wood etc are printed with the screen-printing technique. Screen printing is not necessarily cost efficient in low quantities especially with multiple colors since you have or make a screen for each color with a screen charge for each screen. When printing larger quantities such as tee shirts for employees or events screen printing is very cost efficient.
At StitchMine we use the highest quality inks in our screen-printing process.

What Designs Can I Get Screen Printed?
We want all of our clients to be satisfied with their final products. That’s why it’s important to only submit designs suitable for screen printing. Here are some guidelines to keep in mind before submitting your design to our team.
- Letter Size: Letters shouldn’t be smaller than 0.25″. If letters are too small in size, they won’t print well.
- Preferred Formats: We prefer working with vector files (ai, eps, pdf) with fonts converted to outlines. These types of formats produce the highest quality prints. You can also submit raster files (jpg, tif, png, eps), but please note this will not produce as favorable a result as vector files. These should be at a minimum of 150 dpi, but 300 dpi or higher is best.
- Gradients: While we welcome gradients, be mindful that we use the “half tone” screen printing method to achieve a smooth color progression. This may result in a slightly different design from what you see on a computer screen.
