This technique is widely used for creating custom T-shirts, promotional materials, and other branded merchandise. Here we will explain the benefits of screen printing, the process involved, and how businesses in Spokane can utilize this technique to enhance their brand image.

Benefits of Screen Printing 

  1. Cost-effective: Screen printing is an affordable method of producing large quantities of custom products. The more items printed, the lower the cost per unit. This makes it an ideal choice for businesses looking to create promotional merchandise or branded apparel for employees and clients.

  2. Versatility: Screen printing can be used on a wide range of materials, including fabrics, glass, metal, wood, and plastic. This versatility allows businesses to create custom products for various purposes, such as promotional items, uniforms, signs, and more.

  3. Durability: Screen printed items are known for their durability and long-lasting appeal. Certain inks used in this process are resistant to fading, cracking, and peeling, ensuring that the printed design remains vibrant and intact for an extended period.

  4. Customization: Screen printing offers businesses the opportunity to create truly unique and personalized products. With endless design possibilities, businesses can showcase their brand’s identity and create a lasting impression on their clients.

The Screen Printing Process

  1. Design: The first step in the screen printing process is to create a design for the desired product. Businesses can either use pre-existing designs or work with a professional designer to create a custom design that reflects their brand’s identity.

  2. Preparation: Once the design is finalized, it is prepared for screen printing by separating it into individual colors and converting it into a stencil. This involves cutting a fine mesh with a light-sensitive emulsion, which will later be used to transfer the design onto the substrate.

  3. Exposure: The stencil is exposed to light, causing the emulsion to harden and create a permanent image on the mesh. This process is called exposure or burning.

  4. Inking: The hardened mesh is then coated with ink, ensuring that it evenly covers the open areas of the mesh. Excess ink is removed, leaving only the desired amount for printing.

  5. Printing: The screen is placed on the substrate, and ink is pressed onto the material using a squeegee. The process is repeated for each color in the design, allowing for multi-color prints.

  6. Drying: The printed items are sent through a industrial dryer, ensuring that the ink adheres properly to the substrate.

  7. Finishing: Once the items are dry, any necessary finishing touches are applied, such as adding hangtags and labels.

How We Help Businesses Utilize Screen Printing

  1. Promotional products: Screen printing allows businesses to create custom promotional items, such as T-shirts, tote bags, and mugs. These items can be given away at trade shows, events, or as gifts to clients and employees.

  2. Branded merchandise: Businesses can create branded merchandise, such as uniforms, hats, and jackets, to promote their company’s identity and boost employee morale.
