Well we are finally ready to custom screenprint t-shirts
. With the hard work behind us we now are ready to set up the screens on the press. This is done in different ways depending on what type of screenprinting press is used. At www.bendershirts.com
we used primarily automatic presses. This means that the printing is done by the machine rather than by hand. There are some advantages to using automatic press which we will tackle in another blog.
On the automatic press we place in screens in a sequence that best fits the design. Then we align the screens with the registration marks that were printed on each film. Once we have the marks aligned we place the ink in the screen. Now that the screens are filled with in we put in clean squeegees and run a test print to make sure pressures and alignment are correct. If there are any problems they are fix and another test print is run.
We now have a sample for our quality control representative to approve. At this point we can begin the printing
. On our press we average about 300 shirts per hour. We now have a finish order that is ready to ship.
This is a general idea of the printing process. You can now see that custom screen printed t shirts
is a pretty complex process that is very time consuming. At bendershirts.com
we do our best to make sure your order is handled with care and every shirt goes out with top quality.
