What is screen printing?
Screen printing is a branding method which uses ink to create logos on garments.
Using a vector file of your logo, a film negative is created per colour, per logo size. These film negatives are then used to make the screens (think of a small wire mesh window which the ink will transfer through).
By using the screens ink will be brushed over them to create the design. Once the screen print has been put onto the garment it is then put through a special oven which cures the ink to make sure that it lasts a long time.
Screen printing is a great way to add your logo with a more modern flare.
