Printing Processes

Full Color Digital Imaging Capabilities:

We use color laser printers and color inkjet printers for digital image process printing.

Here' s how it works: we use high resolution color laser imaging and/or inkjet printers to output your image on specially coated polymer material. The image is then applied to the garment through a high temperature/pressure fusion process. The result is very brilliant colors that look really great, feel great, and stand up to many washings!  This process is good for small runs of multi color work as well as runs of less than the 24 screen printed minimums.

We offer (2) imprint sizes for digital imaging:
(1). Logo size (also known as "breast" or "heart" size). This is the typical imprint size for a company logo to printed on the breast area or sleeve of a shirt. The logo imprint size is any size 4" X 4" maximum or smaller.

(2). Full size. This is our standard imprint size. This imprint size is for printing across the full front or full back of the shirt. The full size imprint is 10.5" X 8.25" (landscape) or 8.25" X 10.5" (portrait). You can use a standard sheet of paper as your guide for sizing when planning your design layout.

Screen Printing Capabilities:

Our standard minimum order for screen printed garments, unless otherwise indicated, is 24 pieces. Our minimum order for multi-color screen printing  varies based on the design and colors.  Call for information.

We offer screen printing on all types of sportswear in up to (10) colors on light colored garments and (9) colors on dark colored garments.

In addition to spot color screen printing, we also offer full color screen printing, commonly known as "process color printing."

Pantone Matching Systems (PMS) colors are designed for the offset printing industry, and for inks that are to be printed on white paper. The system applied to plastisol inks comes very close to matching PMS colors. However, since plastisol ink is different from offset ink, an exact PMS color match cannot be guaranteed in any plastisol ink matching system. Pantone color matching is available for $40 per color.

The following is a list of our most popular stock ink colors and the approximate PMS color. This color list is provided for your convenience and should not be used for exact matching due to differences in printing ink systems and manufacturers' ink lots, as well as your computer monitor.  All standard ink colors are available, if you would like to use a color not listed below please contact us for availability.
