Screen Printing is a popular process which is usually done by using a fine mesh screen onto a substrate. You can find three components in this printing process: Art, Screens, and the Print.For a Screen Printing Company or press, each of the components is equally important, since if one component is not up to the mark, the whole process will be shuttered.

Large Format Screen Printing process actually starts with the art room. The clients send us an idea and we make it a reality. We first design and send an initial mock up to the client for approval. Once the client has approved the art on the virtual mock up, we break down the design into separate colors. This is a fairly difficult and complex process and can only be performed by a professional Screen Printing New York company. And this is where we can offer our years of experience to the clientele.
Once the design is separated, it is then etched to a screen using a design exposure unit. The quality of the printing screen should of high quality, so that the outcome of the print is the best. If you use a loose screen, the clarity and saturation will be sacrificed. Here in Custom 101 prints, we have the finest screens available to get the job done right so that it shows the actual detail of the given image.

Discharge printing is the process where we print a chemical that removes the dye from the garment, returning it to its original cotton color. This process can be used on its own to achieve a nice and natural imprint. Discharge printing is commonly used in printing water-based inks on dark garments. When combined with water-based inks, you can achieve a soft hand with a multi-color print on most dark garments. Advantages: Allows for a very fashionable, soft hand on dark garments. When combined with water based inks, multi-color, vibrant prints are possible. Disadvantages: Not all garments are dischargeable. Not all garments will discharge the same, even within the same run/box of garments. The end result won’t be seen until the garment is fully printed and run through the dryer. The difficulty results in slower printing and higher rejects compared to standard Plastisol printing.
Foil stamping is a special effect that gives a brilliant metallic finish.It can be applied to almost any garment substrate that can withstand the heat and curing process of a typical screen-printing. The main limitation is that the foil will adhere to Plastisol ink, so single color or water-based imprints are recommended. Colors available are generally: Gold, Silver, Copper, Pink, Red, Purple, Royal, and a variety of psychedelic swirls.
A printing technique where the artwork is created using dots (CMYK) which combine to create a full spectrum of colors needed for photographic prints. This means a large number of colors can be printed using only 4 screens, making the set-up costs viable. The inks are required to blend and are more translucent. It can compromise the vibrancy of colors. It is difficult to achieve exact PMS colors with 4cp printing, but it is possible to add additional spot colors if needed. 4 color process is best when used on white and light colored shirts.
Plastisol is the most common ink used in screen-printing. They are particularly useful for printing opaque graphics on dark fabrics. Advantages: Advantages: Plastisol is recommended for printing on colored fabrics.On lighter and dark fabric, Plastisol is extremely opaque and will result in a bright, vibrant color. Plastisol is the easiest ink to match exact PMS colors. The ink is made up of PVC particles suspended in a plasticizing emulsion. Because of this, the ink will not dry in the screen, allowing a long consistent print run with lower reject rates. Disadvantages: Plastisol inks result in a thicker hand and heavier imprint.Because of this, Plastisol ink is not recommended for specialty applications such as printing over seams, collars and full bleed-offs.
Simulated Process colored images have a photo-realistic look but are not printed with the process colors of CMYK. They are similar to process in desired effect only. The color separations for simulated process are made up of halftone images of spot colors like red, yellow, blue, etc. They are often called “tonal” or “channel” separations. Simulated process separations can be printed on light and dark shirts.
Because the inks for simulated process color are generally all-purpose, they give you a bright print even when printed on an under-base of white ink. When done correctly, simulated process prints can be very photo-realistic with smooth gradations and bright colors.
Water-based inks are a more fashion and environmentally friendly ink. The thin viscosity of water-based inks makes them ideal for specialty applications. Unlike Plastisol where the pigment is suspended in PVC, water-based ink uses H2O to transport the pigment to the garment. The result is a very soft hand that leaves a small environmental footprint. Advantages: Soft hand with very bright colors on light colored garments. Few chemicals are involved in printing with water-based ink and they contain no PVC or phalates. Disadvantages: The inks are not as opaque as Plastisol, making it difficult to print bright colors on dark garments without other special techniques. Reject rates are typically higher.
Our oversized printing makes use of our standard screen-printing equipment and price list however it allows a larger imprint area than the standard imprint size.
All over printing is a great example of a technique that is in high demand among apparel buyers today. This style of printing uses custom manufactured wing pallets that allows us to go over seams, collars, sleeves and full bleeds. We have taken steps to customize our machines to handle prints up to 25″ wide (shoulder) x 21″ wide (body) x 31″ (tall). This allows us to handle most XXL men’s t-shirts. Proprietary processes have also been developed by our dedicated research and development team to optimize inline foiling (max width 17.5″).
