The Art of Screen Printing at ThreadCo

Posted  Jun, Thu, 2024

A technique that’s been revolutionizing custom apparel for decades. At ThreadCo Print Shop, located in the heart of Vancouver, we specialize in bringing your unique designs to life through high-quality screen printing.

What is Screen Printing?

Screen printing, also known as silk screening, is a versatile printing technique that involves transferring ink onto a surface through a mesh screen. This method allows for the creation of vivid, durable designs on a variety of garments, from t-shirts and hoodies to bags and hats.

Why Choose Screen Printing?

1. Durability: Screen printing produces long-lasting prints that can withstand repeated washings and wear. This makes it an ideal choice for team uniforms, workwear, and promotional merchandise.

2. Vibrant Colors: This method uses thick inks that result in bright, eye-catching colors. Whether you’re looking for a simple one-color design or a complex multi-color artwork, screen printing can achieve stunning results.

3. Versatility: Screen printing isn’t limited to fabric. It can be used on a wide range of materials, including paper, wood, and plastic, making it a versatile option for various projects.

Our Process

At ThreadCo, we pride ourselves on delivering exceptional quality. Here’s a glimpse into our screen printing process:

1. Design Consultation: We start with a thorough consultation to understand your vision. Our team works with you to finalize the design and select the best colors and placements.

2. Screen Preparation: Each color in your design requires a separate screen. Our skilled technicians prepare these screens with precision to ensure accurate reproduction of your artwork.

3. Printing: Using state-of-the-art equipment, we apply the ink through the screens onto your chosen garments. Each piece is carefully inspected to maintain the highest standards.

4. Curing: After printing, the garments are cured in a high-temperature dryer to set the ink. This step is crucial for the durability and vibrancy of the print.

5. Quality Check: Finally, we perform a thorough quality check to ensure that every item meets our rigorous standards before it reaches you.
