Your color options when silk screen printing are unlimited. We will work with you personally to assure that all of your children's blanks receive your design to your satisfaction. For greater accuracy it is important to state the required Pantone Colors. As the print may be on a colored garment the pantone color used may appear to be slightly different than that approved.
ADVANTAGE to silk screening is that you can print larger quantities of wholesale baby clothes at relatively less cost than other types of printing. It is not ideal for smaller quantities because this is not as cost effective; however, once we have made a silk screening negative for the blank kids clothes of your choice, the set-up cost is free the next time you print with us!
Camouflage Printing Tips
The fabric of our camouflage garments is printed; therefore screen printers can have issues with ink migrating from the camouflage print to the screen print they place on the garment.
Dye migration can occur, as the heat during drying causes the camouflage printed dyes to revert back to a "liquid" state.
Try these tips below to improve results the next time you print on our camouflage t-shirts and fleece Hoodies & Sweatshirts.
- Use an ink formulated for high bleed resistance like a poly white or ultra-white
- Using polyester inks like One Stroke or Wilflex Epic inks will also help because they cure at a much lower temp. Also using a bleed resistant “under base gray” will help neutralize the color of the migrating dye.
- Use a 140 or lower mesh count
- Cure no higher than 300 - 320 degrees Fahrenheit
- Cure for a minimum of 1 to 1 1/2 minutes
