What's screen printing? Screen Printing, which is also known as Screen Silk, is an awesome method of a tee shirt printed utilizing thick ink that was on the top of the shirt, rather than soaking in the shirt. Silk-screen printing is what most businesses use and back in the afternoon, was the only major approach to produce bulk quantities of custom shirts. Off Tha Hook provides Screen Printing, because in some cases, it is better to use screen printing. With thicker inks, screen printing is better for images with only one or two colors of ink being used. 

Instead of direct to garment (DTG), the screen printing will allow these colors to stand out to you as jack in the box. The thick ink is going to have a soft impression when touched and will make for a really amazing look. In case you are in no hurry and have minimum colors for a t-shirt, then we recommend Screen Printing. It looks great and it's often cheaper for larger amounts.  

Just how does Screen Printing work? The fine mesh is stretched tightly on a frame. A copy of the design is printed on the screen to be put on the shirt. Once set properly, ink is rolled on the screen, just the areas where the design was printed allow ink to slip through. The ink then sets on the t-shirt and is put into a dryer to cure. We will be sincere with you, it is a lot more complex than that. There is a lot of methods, ink, and chemicals that go into making your t-shirts, but that is the simple version. We advocate screen printing for simple company logos, group names, and t-shirts with text. As well, screen printing works really well with both light and dark t-shirts.
