Screen printing is a popular method for printing images on various mediums, including apparel, canvas, and paper. Often referred to as silk screen, it's a technique that has been around for hundreds of years and hasn't changed much in recent years. If you're looking for a screen printing service near you, there are many options to choose from. They include local screen printing shops like ours that can handle bulk, wholesale print orders and web-based companies that can accommodate print-on-demand orders coming directly from an e-commerce website like Shopify.
If you're interested in custom screen printed apparel, there are many screen printing companies that offer their services, but none that will offer you the level of attention and responsiveness that Print Renegades can. We pride ourselves on our customer service and ability to treat each job individually, making sure to get the best result possible the first time around.
T-shirts are the most common item we print on. Everyone has a t-shirt idea at some point and we live to bring that idea to life. You can provide us with shirts of your own to print on or ask us about our different distributors from which we can order countless color and fabric options.
One of the benefits of screen printing is the ability to create high-quality prints using a variety of ink options, such as water-based inks or plastisol inks. These inks can create unique effects, like soft prints with a vintage feel or bright, bold prints with a glossy finish. You can learn more about inks in this blog post. Popular brands for cotton t-shirts that offer a wide range of stylish and comfortable t-shirts, pocket tees, long sleeve tees and polos include Comfort Colors, Bella Canvas, Next Level Apparel, and Gildan. All of which are available to us and can be found in our catalog link.
Much like t-shirts, sweatshirts come in various styles, fabrics and colors but can be limiting as to what we can print and where due to seams, pockets and zippers. Crewneck pullover sweatshirts provide the most versatile option for printing in this category but we can print on a variety of fleece styles. Many of your favorite brands have fleece options like Gildan, Bella Canvas and Comfort Colors. Some additional brands we like are Independent Trading Company, Champion, Los Angeles Apparel and AS Colour. We are able to source a variety of apparel and help you find the item that best fits your or your customer's needs.
Tote bags are an easy and fairly inexpensive way to get your logo or branding on a promotional product that has some real use. They come in all sorts of colors, materials and sizes and can be screen-printed on one or both sides.
"Large" sometimes just isn’t large enough, so you have to go JUMBO. With a 17 x 28” max size, you can cover the entire front of even some of the largest t-shirts.
All-over prints are rudimentary ways of getting a custom pattern printed on a run of t-shirts or other garments. This is not always suggested as printing over seams and folds usually provides less-than-optimal results but we do our best to make sure we make them look as good as possible. Pricing for all-over printing may vary based on quantities and design complexity. All-over printing is also usually limited to a single ink color.
While embroidery is the preferred method for decorating on hats, it is possible to apply a screen printed graphic. The majority of decorated hats you might find in a retail store are printed or embroidered before the hat is fully constructed. This allows the decoration to be applied under optimal circumstances.
Screen printing requires the object being printed to lay flat. Since hats are constructed to fit a round object (AKA your dome), they rarely lay flat. The way around this is to screen print on transfer paper then heat press the graphic onto the hats using a special heat press. The results are often indistinguishable from a direct screen print.
