Screen-Printing

This branding process is ideal for bags and t-shirts but can also be used for umbrellas, cooler bags, and smaller items such as notebooks and folders.

Screen Printing requires a Set up of Silk Screens which are either made by using a Film to make Stencils or by using positives and a light exposure unit.

Using a squeegee, ink is pushed through the screen in the areas where the logo is exposed and onto the product that is being printed. Ink is then bonded (cured) with the item by (By using a Flash Dryer, Tunnel or Oven) .

Detail in the print can be excellent, however very fine detail and text less than 3mm high should be avoided as the details can “close up” during printing due to the ink bleeding or based on the texture of the product. Item textures can impact on print quality and superior detail can be achieved on a smooth fabric as opposed to a coarse one.

    Hi there,

    I was wondering if you would be able to print onto a white pillow case?

    Please let me know.

    Kind Regards,
    Timothy

      Hello Timothy,

      Yes, we can do branding onto a pillow.
      If there are many pillows and they need screen-printed we’d need them in panels as a standard pillow won’t fit over our screen-printing boards unless they are continental pillows. If you would only like one or a few pillows done, then we use different branding techniques depending on your design.

      Let me know the size of your pillow , how many you are looking at and send me the picture of what you want branded onto the pillow (if it’s just writing you can just tell me what you want written) and then I can advise of price and which branding option is best suited.

      kind regards,
      Marion.
