Screen printing is a printing technique that forces ink through a mesh onto fabric.
Areas of the mesh that are blocked out do not receive ink, and this makes it possible to print fairly intricate designs using multiple colours, as each colour is applied individually.
We charge a set-up fee of $20.00 per colour which applies each time a design is reordered. All quoted pricing on the apparel on the danceteamwear.ca website includes a one-colour screen print.
Please note: there are additional charges for more then one colour screen printing or with foil or metallic ink.
12 per size/colour of a design for screen printing. Apparel can be mixed and matched to meet the minimum of a dozen as long as the design will be placed in the same location and the fabric is similar.
We are happy to help you make design choices flexible enough to work with a lot of different apparel items. (This makes ordering and reordering much easier!)
Maximum Design Size: 12 inches by 15 inches
File Types: We require vector files (EPS, AI and sometimes PDF), but can transform any design into a vector file for a rate of $35 per hour.
Colours: We use the Pantone Matching System to specify colours. You can view them online here, but note that your screen settings will alter the appearance of the colour you see. To be sure a colour is exactly as you expect it to be, you’ll need to check a printed Pantone swatch book.
