We specialize in small and medium format hand pulled silkscreen printing on paper, wood, metal, and almost any other flat surface. Bring us your idea and we will be happy to figure it out with you.
Screen printing is a printing technique that uses a woven mesh to support an ink-blocking stencil to receive a desired image. The attached stencil forms open areas of mesh that transfer ink or other printable materials onto a substrate by being pressed through the mesh as a sharp-edged image. A fill blade or squeegee is moved across the screen stencil, forcing or pumping ink into the mesh openings for transfer by capillary action during the squeegee stroke. It is essentially the process of using a stencil to apply ink onto another material, whether it be t-shirts, posters, stickers, vinyl, wood, or any material that can keep the image onto its surface.
Film/Transparency Output ($0.05/sq. in.)
The film/transparency is what is used to expose the screen in order to make the stencil needed to print. Our transparency output is 44″ wide and up to about 90″ in length. We have very competitive pricing at $0.05/sq. in. Our film is printed using UV blocking film opaquing ink. It is durable, waterproof, and practically scratch resistant.
Digital Color Separations
Silkscreen printing is a spot color process, meaning there is only one color printed at a time using a stencil. Before you can print film to be used to make your stencils, each color has to be separated out of the artwork. If you do not already have colors separated for your art, we offer color separations services. Our separator has extensive experience color mixing and separating colors for print and will work with you to achieve the best results for printing.
