Silk Screen Printing Denver, Colorado
What makes Custom Silk Screen Printing so difficult is every job is totally different from every other job. Each project has its own set of idiosyncrasies. Even the most simple job is complicated because of its unique qualities, defining the very meaning of “custom”. Here’s the “simple version” of how we go about it:
Your particular screen print process starts with an idea. Let us help you with the process. We are happy to help you every step of the way. It’s what we do. It’s who we are.
Step 1: Send your art work to us. (please see art work requirements). Let us know what you have in mind for your project and we will confirm the art work is useable for reproduction, or consult you as to how we can make it usable artwork.
Step 2: Choose a garment. What garment and fabric colors will look fantastic for your idea? Let us know what you have in mind and we will guide you through our catalog(s) and help you choose the right garment(s) for you. We’ll then send you mock ups (three mock ups per client, art charges apply after 3 mock-ups).
Step 3: What sizes would you like? Who is your demographic and how would they like their shirts to fit them? Remember, it’s our goal to make the shirt we’re printing for you your favorite shirt, the one you always pull out to wear! Forget washing your car with it! Our minimum shirt order is 24 of the same design, although if our schedule permits, we’ll print less than minimums, although extra charges may apply.
Step 4: With your mock up and sizes we will send you an Order Confirmation for your approval. This Confirmation is a Work Order for our production team. It will have all the information regarding your entire project. We will wait for your approval to this Confirmation before moving forward in production .
Step 5: LET’S PRINT! If you are in the Denver Metro Area we invite you to come see your first strike-off. This way you can approve exact placement and ink colors and see first hand how the process works. We schedule press checks at 9am, 10am or 11am. If you are not able to come into our shop we can send you a photo, or use your mock for approval.
Step 6: Your shirts are ready to wear and are hot off the press. They’re packed by size, dozen, and color. Water based inks have to be washed once before that print is super soft.
Our turn around time is about two weeks, and then you’ll have your new favorite shirt!
