Screen Printer – Utah’s Best

Apparel Screen Printer

Companies and individuals alike seek to get designs and logos applied to their clothing, whether it be for personal use or for large scale organized events. One of the best ways to do so is through screen printing. This process consists of creating a design on fabric by pressing ink through a custom stenciled mesh. It’s used in many industries, so it’s likely that you’ve used or worn something that has been screen printed. While it’s commonly used on canvases and for artwork, it has been proven effective in apparel design. The application process begins with the design. For us to print anything we need to have the design you’d like applied to your apparel. If you cannot create the design you want, our graphic designer is on hand to assist you. All they need are your specifications to create the exact design you want. Using this design, our design team will make the appropriate stencil to be used in the application of your design to the fabric. This stencil can be made in various ways. Masking tape or vinyl may be used to cover the areas that will be covered by the design. The stencil may also be painted onto the mesh screen using screen blockers like glue or lacquer. Another method involves using light-sensitive emulsion to create the stencil, which will then be subject to development like a photograph. Next, the screen will be properly prepared. Our printers will select the screen that can accommodate the complexity of the design and the fabric it will be printed on. A light-reactive emulsion will then be painted on the screen so that it will harden during development under bright lights. The acetate sheet which contains the design is to be laid on top of the the screen and then developed. Under the lights, the emulsion will harden, which allows the area adorned by the design to remain in liquid form. Once the emulsion is washed off, the area left behind will be ready for the ink to be pressed through. Our production team will lay the screens upon the printing press and the item of clothing to be printed on is placed on the printing board, underneath the screen. Once ink is applied to the top end of the screen, it’s lowered onto the printing board. Then, a squeegee will be used to drag the ink across the screen so that it’s pressed through the stencil. This applies the design to the fabric underneath. Once the design has been successfully applied, the rest of the emulsion is removed from the mesh so that it can be reused for future stencils. The fabric will then be passed through a dryer, which dries and cures the ink so that a smoother finish is created. Members of our production team will check the garment and ensure that there isn’t any stray ink to be found so that your product is in perfect condition.
