Screen printing made easy in Bolton

Screen printing is the technique of ink being applied directly to the surface of the desired garment; whether the garment is a t-shirt, polo, hoodie or even joggers. The screen printing process firstly involves your logo or artwork being exposed onto a mesh screen using a light source exposure technique. Secondly it dries in a specially designed dark room and finally we are then ready to print your design onto your garments!

Your chosen colour of ink is wiped across the screen using a squeegee and passes through the clear mesh onto the garment fabric, the screen is then lifted carefully off the garment and is dried using a tunnel dryer until the ink has cured to the garment. Usually when printing onto dark coloured garment fabric with a light coloured ink more than one coat of ink is needed; therefore a flash dryer is used after each layer to get the best coverage.
