Since January 2023, we print our own clothes in screen printing
Textile screen printing is a printing technique that uses a screen to transfer ink onto fabric. It is one of the oldest and most popular printing methods for customizing textiles, such as t-shirts, sweatshirts, etc.
The screen printing process involves several steps. First, a screen printing screen is prepared by stretching a fine mesh over a frame. Then a photosensitive substance is applied to the screen and dried. This substance reacts to light and becomes water insoluble when exposed to light in desired areas.
Once the screen is ready, it is placed above the textile to be printed. Ink is poured on the screen, then a scraper is used to force the ink through the mesh of the screen and transfer the image to the textile by exerting pressure.
Screen printing makes it possible to create durable and high-quality prints on textiles. It is appreciated for its versatility, as it can print on a wide variety of materials, including cotton, polyester, nylon and other synthetic fabrics. In addition, it offers a wide range of vivid colors and excellent opacity.
We use this technique and you seem to like the result.
