PRINTING

Screen printing is a tried and tested stencil method of print making. It can be used to print posters, t-shirts, hoodies, band patches and almost anything else that will fit under the press and take the ink.

We are currently set up to print garments in up to four colours at a maximum size of A3. We use plastisol ink, a kind of heat cured rubber based ink that forms a mechanical bond to fabric. It is hard wearing and very opaque.

The minimum order we will consider is 25 shirts or garments. However if you’d like to add other garments in odd numbers to this like some hoodies or long sleeves, please talk to us.

We’ll contact you within 24 hours with a quote. Once a quote is agreed upon we will send you an invoice by email. All printing is paid for in advance and we aim to have a turnaround of one week from date of payment to a maximum of two weeks if the job is complicated.

PLEASE NOTE we are no longer registered for VAT and no longer charge this

Each colour to be printed requires a screen to set up the stencil to print that part of the design. Each colour is printed one at a time and cured before the next print.

Setup includes our associated costs for our time, the film to print your artwork and chemicals to apply and remove the stencil – we reclaim ALL screens after a print run has finished.

Setup is £20 per screen.

Also, we ask that you give us artwork that is of a workable quality. Poor quality images will result in poor prints. Please contact your artist and get high quality images (300 dpi preferably) for your artwork.

Here is a breakdown of our Printing and Garment prices. These will change appropriately when our associated costs do.

Printing

Setup Per Screen/Colour £20
First colour print £1 per print
Subsequent colour prints 80p per print
- Any changes of colour on a screen are only £5 per colour per order to account for wasteage.
- Special treatments or additives are at an extra expense and are complicated, please talk to us first.

The Gory Details

If you have artwork that is in more than four colours we will do our best to optimise your images to suit a four colour design and furnish you with a digital proof.

If this is not suitable, consider commissioning new artwork with us and we can do the printing for you. If you’ve been quoted for a six colour separation to print your album art for instance, even with our commission rate it could be cheaper to print something totally new. Think about it.
