Perth’s Screen Printing Kings
Whatever your reason for needing a large quantity of fully custom tees, we’ve got you covered. We’ve been doing this for decades, and with great experience comes great responsibility. By ‘great responsibility’, we obviously mean ‘the best screen printed t-shirts you’ll see anywhere in the universe ever’. That’s right – when the time comes and we finally master intergalactic travel you will never find better screen printing than our shop in Perth.
What does ‘screen printed’ mean and why should I care?
Still the most common and cost effective way to decorate garments, it involves photographic stencil preparation, with one screen and one film needed for each colour in the image. This means that multi-colour images are more expensive to print than single colour images. Also, due to the set up and pull down part of screen printing, small quantities are more expensive. This is where digital printing is useful, as there is no setup, and no colour limit.
On the other side of the coin, large quantities are much more economical when screen printed. Once the job is prepared we can print up to 500 custom printed t-shirts per hour, in up to 12 colours (compared to 30 digital prints per hour). The most common ink used is a vinyl compound called plastisol, and with the correct dexterous techniques it yields a hard wearing image that can be soft to wear and vibrant. Also, unlike digital where it’s quite limited as to where your design can actually go, with screen printed t-shirts the positioning of where you want it is much more adaptable.
On top of all of these benefits, if you return for a repeat print you won’t be charged setup fees again, either. Please note that the maximum image size is 430mm x 550 mm. Take a look out our gallery page to see samples.
