Screen printing (which used to be called silk screening) is the primary process for decorating blank clothing in bulk quantities. The following outlines the basic process used in all screen printing after the clothing is selected and the artwork is finalized:
The standard inks used in screen printing are plastisol inks and have a long record of good performance in garment printing. They are easy to match and cover the clothing very well. Newer inks and processes such as glitter inks and discharge printing provide additional effects but are harder to work with..
We can print on almost any type of clothing (tee shirts, hoodies, sweat shirts, shorts, etc). We can also print on a number of other items such as duffel bags, back packs, cinch sacks, etc. Here are just some examples:

Send us an email firstname.lastname@example.org with the details of what you need. Include as much information as you have about your project, including:
For best results, a high quality vector or high resolution (300dpi+) raster image is required.
We accept the following file types of files: .PSD, .AI, .JPEG, .EPS, .PDF, .TIFF.
Vector graphics such as .AI or .EPS that have been created properly are preferred because they will scale to any size without losing detail. If you must provide a raster image such as .JPG or .TIFF, it should be at least 300 dpi at the size you need the artwork to appear on the clothing. Lower quality images can sometimes be used as-is depending on the design but may appear unclear or jagged in the print.
We always have a graphic artist on staff if you require help with your artwork. See our Graphic Design page for more information.
