Screenprinting Halftones on Custom T-Shirts
Screenprinting Halftones makes custom t-shirts more colorful at a fraction of the cost. Below is a picture of a custom t-shirt we printed with halftones in it.
If you notice in the word MEXICO there is a fade from top to bottom. This gives the look of 2 different greens and reds. What happens is with halftones we print small dots to give a shaded look. We can print halftones from 20-60 percent of the color. Most designs we print have some type of halftone involed. Custom screenprinted shirts always look better with halftones. It is the best way to get more for your money. If you have any questions about halftones please feel free to call on of our helpful sales staff toll free at 1-888-222-9542.

2nd Step to a Custom Screenprinted T-Shirt
Ok, last post we talked about deciding on what we wanted to custom screenprint on our garment. It probably is one of the hardest steps to complete for the customer. The next step falls on the graphic artist.
Once the customer tells the sales representive
what they would like printed, the sales representaive
passes it along to the graphic artist. The graphic artist
now has the responsiblity of converting the artwork to a vector format which is compatiable with vector programs such as Adobe Illustrator and Corel Draw. This can be either very time consuming or easy as a couple clicks of a button. Once the artist has the artwork ready for print it is sent via email to the customer for final approval. At this point the artwork is ready and we wait for the customer to respond.
The customer will now only have to look at their custom screen printed design to see if there are any errors in spelling, color or layout. This is something customers really need to look at carefully.

1st Step to Custom Screen Printed T-Shirts
I am going to take the next few blogs to walk you thru
the custom screen printing process
. Today so many people think that all you have to do is push a print button and out pops a t-shirt. My goal is to show you how much goes into that comfortable custom screenprinted t-shirt
you have on. Things have been made easier in the screen printing
industry over the last 15 years, the first of which is computerized artwork.
Today I am going to focus on the first step to receiving your custom printed tee shirt
. The initial part of screenprinting
is deciding on what to print on your tee. This has been made easier over the years because most people have access
to the Internet
or to a drawing program. This gives the customer the opportunity
to narrow down his ideas and know what he or she wants before contacting a screenprinter
This seems like it should be the easiest part of the screen printing process
, but it is not. Most people (myself included) don't have that artistic ability. That is why at www.bendershirts.com
we only ask for the layout you are looking for and our artist will bring your idea to life on you custom t-shirts
That is the first step in custom screen printed
t-shirts---Deciding on Artwork

Why are there minimums in Custom Screen Printing
we have a minimum of 25 custom printed items at a time. The reason we have minimums on custom screenprinting
is because set up on screenprinting
is very time consuming. To cover the cost of the setup we spread the cost across the 25 garments. If we only spread the cost of the setup across 12 custom screenprinted
garments the price per garment would not be competitive enough.
We run fully automatic screen printing press that give some of the best quality prints available. The downside to automatic screen printing is the setup time. The benefit is print time. This makes it so that printing small quantity orders is not as cost effective. We still offer a fairly low minimum but our prices are more competitive
the higher volume of custom screenprinted garments
Let me give you an example, if you purchase 25 of the 29m Jerzees 50/50
t-shirt with a 2 color full front print the price would be $8.98. If you purchase the same custom print on 250 shirts your price would drop to $3.59.

Which Golfshirt is the Best
When it comes to custom embroidered golf shirts
there are many choices. The first question to ask yourself is what if my budget. When talking about custom golf shirts
you price can range from $11.00 - $80.00. I like to ask my customers what they are using their golf shirts
for so that I can better understand the purpose. If it is a school that are looking for a custom embroidered golf shirt
to wear once or twice a month, I recommend the Jerzees 50/50 golf shirt
. This is a fairly inexpensive golf shirt
but serves the purpose for many of my clients. Now if I am talking to a law firm who are looking for a casual Friday shirt, I would lead them to the Devon & Jones line. The Devon & Jones sports a great look for a great price. Most of my corporate customers go with the D100
for a nice look wash after wash.
