Despite all the advances in digital printing, the majority of all T-shirts worldwide are still screen printed today. This will remain so for the foreseeable future.
For larger print runs, textile screen printing is superior to all other processes in terms of price, quality and durability. As one of the first textile printing companies in Europe, we can offer textile screen printing certified according to GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard)!
We will receive a digital template from you (preferably a tif with at least 300dpi, but any other professional graphic format is also possible) and for the printing colors, if possible, an indication in HKS or Pantone (see also our FAQs).
In order to be able to print photos or color gradients, the print template must be rasterized, i.e. broken down into small pixels. Since the surface of textiles, in contrast to paper, is relatively coarse-meshed, it is not possible to print with such fine screen rulings on textile substrates. Usual grids in screen printing are between 16 and 24 grids. In contrast to the usual rasterization in offset printing into the four basic colors CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow, black), in textile screen printing the motif usually has to be broken down into more tones. Six to ten printing colors are often required on colored T-shirts.
