SCREEN PRINTING QUESTIONS

"Good" art is very subjective. "Printable" and "functional" art are not. They are defined by the parameters and limitations of screen printing. Sometimes simple changes in artwork can take a print job from impossible and cost prohibitive to attainable and inexpensive.

 

1. What Size Should The Image Be?ANSWERFor T-shirts youth medium to adult XL can be printed together at a 12.5” x 12.5" maximum image size. Youth small, infant and toddler sizes will need to be screen printed with a smaller size imprint. We can print both youth and adult t-shirts together if the design size is made to fit the smallest item being printed. Some customers prefer to have two sizes of films and screens made, one for adult and one for youth. When printing a small order, one size of art is obviously the most economical choice. Ideal image size on other items will be determined by various factors including seams, pockets, pouches, layers and even your personal preference.2. Can My Image Be Printed on Multiple Shirt Colors?ANSWERYes, but you may incur additional charges. As long as the same ink color can be used on all tee shirts, there should be no problem. An example of an issue would be printing red and green text on a charcoal shirt then switching the shirt color to red. Another common problems we see involves black outlines that look great on light colors but disappear on                            dark substrates.3. How Do I know If I Have Good Artwork?ANSWERThe best way to find out is send it too us via one of the methods described in ART INFO. We will inspect the art and let you know whatis needed, if anything. We have put together a Foxworthiesque list of if….then statements to help point out some of the common problemswe see; • If you got a Gif from a website - You might not have good artwork!!! • If you up-sized a Gif from a website - You still do not have good artwork!!!!!! • If you have a screen capture from Youtube - You might not have good artwork!!! • If you drew it on a cocktail napkin - You might not have good artwork!!! • If it was created in anything MICROSOFT - You might not have good artwork!!! • If it was FREE - You might not have good artwork!!!!!! • If we created it and it was free - You might not have good artwork!!! • If it was faxed to you - You might not have good artwork!!! • If you took a digital picture of it - You might not have good artwork!!! • If you have a shirt from another printer and no film - You might not have good artwork!!! • If you have a business card with the logo on it - You might not have good artwork!!!4. Do You Keep The Screen After The Jobs Have Been Printed?ANSWERMost screens are kept a few days after the completion of each job. After that they are reclaimed and used for new jobs. The retensionable frames we use on most jobs are too expensive to store for reuse.5. Do You Keep The Films On File?ANSWERMost screens are kept a few days after the completion of each job. After that they are reclaimed and used for new jobs. The retensionable frames we use on most jobs are too expensive to store for reuse.6. Do You Print Process Designs?ANSWERShadowFax Graphics specializes in Four Color Process and Simulated Process Printing. We need to see the artwork before we can give concrete quotes on process printing. Once we see the art and verify the number of colors in the image and the quality of the image we will give you a firm quote.
