Screen printing involves applying ink via a series of stencils (1 for each colour in the design). It is particularly cost effective for larger runs of garments and also to reproduce large designs. Screen printing is less suitable for small runs of less than 15 garments due to cost.
- Pro’s: Ideal for large runs such as promotional tee shirts, durable results
- Con’s: Extra colours add to the cost per print and initial set up costs, not suitable for small quantity’s
- Set Up Costs: Screen charges (1 per colour) typically around $70 per screen. These are one off costs.
