Silkscreen printing is known with many names - screen printing, silk printing, serigraphy, serigraph printing but they all refer to the same printing technique where a mesh is used to transfer ink onto a substrate, except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil. Silkscreen printing is a very popular and economical method for creating large quantities of customized clothing such as t-shirts, sweatshirts, tank tops, tote bags, and many more garments.
Screen printing is one of the oldest and widely used processes in the Middle East and China. This technique takes its name from the material that gave it a reason to be silk.
This is the question asked by most of the customers when they call our customer service. Unfortunately, it is hard to answer this question before knowing the order details. There are a lot of factors impacting the price of screen printing. Here I am listing some of them:
As the minimum required quantity is 15 pieces in screen printing, the quantity is one of the crucial factors to the price. Basically, the more you order, the less you pay for each custom t-shirt printing.
Another factor that can alter the final cost of a screen-printing job is the materials. This applies both to the fabrics or the inks. Using good quality inks and materials is one way to ensure the durability of screen printing, although it will simply increase the final cost. If you are looking for cheap and good t-shirts, we recommend Gildan 5000 t-shirts which is one of the most printed t-shirts in the printing industry. Other printing products are in the Catalogue menu.
As expected, the price of screen printing will increase if the print is large and will decrease if it is a small design. However, in some cases, a large print may be cheaper than a smaller print if the design does not require a large amount of ink if it consists of thin lines or marks and not complete drawings.
Printing a full-color design is likely more expensive than printing only black and white or just one ink. Choosing a base color may save you money rather than choosing a specific color that requires color matching service.
If you already have a design or you can design it yourself, the service will be cheaper as you don’t need a graphic designer to design it for you. The last key factor to the price is the number of colors in the design as screen printing requires screen setups, which is most time taker work.
