Screen Printing From STL Shirt Co.: What is Screen Printing?
Screen printing is a technique that involves a thick, non-water soluble ink called plastisol, a mesh screen, a squeegee, and a stencil. Utilizing emulsion, our team coats the screen. A stencil is used to coerce the plastisol ink through the screen, or block it depending on your design. If you don’t already have one, our team would love to create a design for you. The ink then hardens in the shape of your design and the stenciled screen is put on a press directly on top of the material. After the ink is placed on the material it has to cure, so heat is applied to solidify the design. This process is repeated as many times as necessary, and at the appropriate speed, to complete your order. Get a free quote for your screen printing order from STL Shirt Co.
