Srceen Printing is a printing technique that uses a screen with open areas on a silk mesh that transfers ink as a sharp-edged image onto the garments. The open areas of the silk mesh are your designs. A roller or squeegee is moved across the screen, pumping ink through the opens areas of the silk stencil, and directly onto the garments.
The artwork is digitised and then computerised embroidery machines are used to stitch the logo or design onto your items of clothing using embroidery software. Embroidery produces an expensive looking, durable finish which is actually very reasonably priced and creates a professional appearance.

If you have used text, convert all the text to outlines by selecting 'Type' - 'Create Outlines' in Adobe Illustrator. This is very important as it will allow us to view your files as they were designed, instead of having our program convert your fonts to one that is installed. If you can't convert the text to outlines then make sure you supply us with the appropriate fonts.
Images taken from websites in general will not be suitable for printing as the quality is very low and the print will be pixelated. Always try to get the original logo or image file in the formats mentioned below. If using Google Images, select large or very large images.
