How does it work? A film positive is used to burn a design into a mesh screen. A separate design and screen must be created for every color in the design. The sceens are then loaded on to a manual or automatic press and the ink is pushed through each screen until design is complete. A large dryer is used to cure the ink and make it permanent.
Pros: screen sets on top of garment so it is very bright and vivid in color, cheaper to produce after initial setup.
Cons: Takes time to get screens ready for production and the setup is usually the most costly part. A setup fee is usually charged, or a larger cost for a smaller run.
Note: Used for high quantity runs with minimal colors. Best Method to use for printing on dark shirts.
