Ever Wonder How You Should Properly Care For Your Custom Printed Garments?

From time to time we get asked what is the best way to care for garments that have custom screen printing on them? Although we are nowhere near Susie Homemakers, we have gained tons of experience and some helpful knowledge on screen printed apparel after being in the business for the last 5 years. Besides properly washing your garments, the quality of the garment it’s self does play a significant role in the “wearability” over time, which is why we suggest to extend the life of your custom garments, you select from some of the best manufactures like Nike or Under Armour. By getting a quality garment to begin with, it will help prevent that feeling you get when you pull your new shirt out of the dryer only to find that it has shrunk down to a belly shirt.

Washing and drying your custom screen printing garments is actually an art form mastered with only a few steps. Following these steps will insure you get the most from your custom screen printing.

1.) Never use bleach or other strong detergents. Stain removers on spots can be helpful, but stay away from using bleach all together.

2.) Always use cold water. Hot water may be good for a hospital or hotel, but when it comes to your clothes, cold water is more gentle on fabrics and does just as well at cleaning.

3.) Always turn your custom screen printing garments inside-out before you throw them in the washer. This will help prevent fading, protect screen printing, and protect embellishments.

4.) NEVER, NEVER, NEVER put your clothes to dry on the machines highest setting. Heat is probably the worst thing you can do to any of your custom screen printing garments. Instead, use low heat and just before the garments are finished drying, pull them out to finish air drying.

5.) Wash similar garments together. Not just colors, but textures and fabrics. This is a great way to minimize cracking and peeling as it reduces the amount of rubbing caused in the washer.

Although this is technically a blog post about laundry, it does play an important factor in ensuring a long shelf life for your custom screen printing garments. Following these steps will help in preventing fading, cracking, peeling, and the production of what’s called pills ( that when too much rubbing is caused in the washer and the fabric creates little lumps of thread that appear like tiny pills). We hope you have found this post helpful, if you have any questions please feel free to contact us.

Why DOES Your Business Need Screen Printing?

Why DOES Your Business Need Screen Printing?

What do some of the tops names in business like Nike have in common? The short answer… They all have garments with their brand screen printed all over them.

What’s The Big Deal With Screen Printed Shirts?

Well, even though most people don’t invest in screen printing or simply don’t care about it doesn’t mean they shouldn’t. Usually, business owners, especially small business owners see this investment as a waste of time because of a lack of super fast returns. Granted, money won’t come pouring from above 5 minutes after leaving the screen printing shop, However, screen printed shirts have a strong potential to have lasting effects on the minds of potential clients that can easily lead to future sales. Think about all the times you spoke to someone and remembered details about the conversation like what kind of shirt they were wearing or how many times have you spotted someone walking down the sidewalk with a pretty eye catching design on? Herein lies the appeal of marketing on apparel. People (or prospective clients) WILL remember your logo, your company colors, slogan and whatever else you decide to print on your shirts… it’s all there painfully visible for all to see.

In-doors or Out-doors?

There are a couple of options with what type of garments you want to represent your business. I’m not referring to the quality or the general type, long sleeve, short sleeve, this brand, that brand, or any of the other millions of choices you have. No, I am talking about in-house garments for your business and it’s employees, more properly labeled uniforms. And secondly, casual screen printed garments you would wear out on the town, on a day off or possibly some type of marketing give-a-way to customers.

First, what does it mean to be wearing a “uniform” in-house? Simply put, it is what employees wear daily to represent a business, a cause or an institution. And guess what? It gushes professional attitude and work place pride. This is without a doubt a necessity for any business with a store front. Your customers may not come out and say it, but they appreciate a professional appearance. It provides a level of security that is needed to build trust with your clients.

As for casual wear, well

And if you’re just walking around town with a t shirt representing your business, what we mentioned above is relevant: People will remember you. More than that, if you have a business t-shirt or hat, just think of how people will come to conceptualize your firm.

Gee, that company has a shirt. It must be big and important.

Admit it. This is what you’d think! This is just one of many advantages to having apparel for your business ready-made and available to yourself and your employees.

And it’s just the sort of thing satisfied customers would appreciate. Just about anyone who patronizes your brand enough will be inclined to purchase a shirt or a hat, or a sticker or a bracelet, and every time they wear it out, they’ll function as free advertising your your brand. This costs a whole lot less than a billboard, and it’s a whole lot better: It’s mobile, it’s more attractive, and it talks! You better bet that people will ask them about the store on their shirt, and you better bet they’ll talk about you positively. After all, they bought your shirt.

And word of mouth is, without a doubt, the most important factor in marketing. If everyone knows your brand, but no one has heard anything about how good it is from anyone they trust, a grand total of no one is going to come to you for anything. And that doesn’t translate to good business.

If you have a good product and provide good service, and you’re confident in your reputation among your customers, you owe it to yourself and your business to get screen printing t shirts that you can wear, that your employees and associates can wear, and that your customers can wear. This is the best way to get the name out, and the best way to make the most of your budget.

High-Quality Screen Printing T Shirts

One more thing: If you’re going to order screen printing t shirts — which you should — make sure that you’re getting high quality material. If your customers like you but are rewarded for their patronage with a scratch, feels-like-barley sweater, they’ll hate you. Don’t do that to them. Spend the money to find the right material, and make sure that the products are quality before releasing them. Wear them for a day yourself — then you can tell if others would want to.

Color Meaning

Red Color  Red

Red is the color of fire and blood, so it is associated with energy, war, danger, strength, power, determination as well as passion, desire, and love.

Red is a very emotionally intense color. It enhances human metabolism, increases respiration rate, and raises blood pressure. It has very high visibility, which is why stop signs, stoplights, and fire equipment are usually painted red. In heraldry, red is used to indicate courage. It is a color found in many national flags.

Red brings text and images to the foreground. Use it as an accent color to stimulate people to make quick decisions; it is a perfect color for ‘Buy Now’ or ‘Click Here’ buttons on Internet banners and websites. In advertising, red is often used to evoke erotic feelings (red lips, red nails, red-light districts, ‘Lady in Red’, etc). Red is widely used to indicate danger (high voltage signs, traffic lights). This color is also commonly associated with energy, so you can use it when promoting energy drinks, games, cars, items related to sports and high physical activity.

Light red represents joy, sexuality, passion, sensitivity, and love.
Pink signifies romance, love, and friendship. It denotes feminine qualities and passiveness.
Dark red is associated with vigor, willpower, rage, anger, leadership, courage, longing, malice, and wrath.
Brown suggests stability and denotes masculine qualities.
Reddish-brown is associated with harvest and fall.

 

Orange Color  Orange

Orange combines the energy of red and the happiness of yellow. It is associated with joy, sunshine, and the tropics. Orange represents enthusiasm, fascination, happiness, creativity, determination, attraction, success, encouragement, and stimulation.

To the human eye, orange is a very hot color, so it gives the sensation of heat. Nevertheless, orange is not as aggressive as red. Orange increases oxygen supply to the brain, produces an invigorating effect, and stimulates mental activity. It is highly accepted among young people. As a citrus color, orange is associated with healthy food and stimulates appetite. Orange is the color of fall and harvest. In heraldry, orange is symbolic of strength and endurance.

Orange has very high visibility, so you can use it to catch attention and highlight the most important elements of your design. Orange is very effective for promoting food products and toys.

Dark orange can mean deceit and distrust.
Red-orange corresponds to desire, sexual passion, pleasure, domination, aggression, and thirst for action.
Gold evokes the feeling of prestige. The meaning of gold is illumination, wisdom, and wealth. Gold often symbolizes high quality.

 

Yellow Color  Yellow

Yellow is the color of sunshine. It’s associated with joy, happiness, intellect, and energy.

Yellow produces a warming effect, arouses cheerfulness, stimulates mental activity, and generates muscle energy. Yellow is often associated with food. Bright, pure yellow is an attention getter, which is the reason taxicabs are painted this color. When overused, yellow may have a disturbing effect; it is known that babies cry more in yellow rooms. Yellow is seen before other colors when placed against black; this combination is often used to issue a warning. In heraldry, yellow indicates honor and loyalty. Later the meaning of yellow was connected with cowardice.

Use yellow to evoke pleasant, cheerful feelings. You can choose yellow to promote children’s products and items related to leisure. Yellow is very effective for attracting attention, so use it to highlight the most important elements of your design. Men usually perceive yellow as a very lighthearted, ‘childish’ color, so it is not recommended to use yellow when selling prestigious, expensive products to men – nobody will buy a yellow business suit or a yellow Mercedes. Yellow is an unstable and spontaneous color, so avoid using yellow if you want to suggest stability and safety. Light yellow tends to disappear into white, so it usually needs a dark color to highlight it. Shades of yellow are visually unappealing because they loose cheerfulness and become dingy.

Dull (dingy) yellow represents caution, decay, sickness, and jealousy.
Light yellow is associated with intellect, freshness, and joy.

 

Green Color  Green

Green is the color of nature. It symbolizes growth, harmony, freshness, and fertility. Green has strong emotional correspondence with safety. Dark green is also commonly associated with money.

Green has great healing power. It is the most restful color for the human eye; it can improve vision. Green suggests stability and endurance. Sometimes green denotes lack of experience; for example, a ‘greenhorn’ is a novice. In heraldry, green indicates growth and hope. Green, as opposed to red, means safety; it is the color of free passage in road traffic.

Use green to indicate safety when advertising drugs and medical products. Green is directly related to nature, so you can use it to promote ‘green’ products. Dull, darker green is commonly associated with money, the financial world, banking, and Wall Street.

Dark green is associated with ambition, greed, and jealousy.
Yellow-green can indicate sickness, cowardice, discord, and jealousy.
Aqua is associated with emotional healing and protection.
Olive green is the traditional color of peace.

 

Blue Color  Blue

Blue is the color of the sky and sea. It is often associated with depth and stability. It symbolizes trust, loyalty, wisdom, confidence, intelligence, faith, truth, and heaven.

Blue is considered beneficial to the mind and body. It slows human metabolism and produces a calming effect. Blue is strongly associated with tranquility and calmness. In heraldry, blue is used to symbolize piety and sincerity.

You can use blue to promote products and services related to cleanliness (water purification filters, cleaning liquids, vodka), air and sky (airlines, airports, air conditioners), water and sea (sea voyages, mineral water). As opposed to emotionally warm colors like red, orange, and yellow; blue is linked to consciousness and intellect. Use blue to suggest precision when promoting high-tech products.

Blue is a masculine color; according to studies, it is highly accepted among males. Dark blue is associated with depth, expertise, and stability; it is a preferred color for corporate America.

Avoid using blue when promoting food and cooking, because blue suppresses appetite. When used together with warm colors like yellow or red, blue can create high-impact, vibrant designs; for example, blue-yellow-red is a perfect color scheme for a superhero.

Light blue is associated with health, healing, tranquility, understanding, and softness.
Dark blue represents knowledge, power, integrity, and seriousness.

 

Purple Color  Purple

Purple combines the stability of blue and the energy of red. Purple is associated with royalty. It symbolizes power, nobility, luxury, and ambition. It conveys wealth and extravagance. Purple is associated with wisdom, dignity, independence, creativity, mystery, and magic.

According to surveys, almost 75 percent of pre-adolescent children prefer purple to all other colors. Purple is a very rare color in nature; some people consider it to be artificial.

Light purple is a good choice for a feminine design. You can use bright purple when promoting children’s products.

Light purple evokes romantic and nostalgic feelings.
Dark purple evokes gloom and sad feelings. It can cause frustration.

 

White Color  White

White is associated with light, goodness, innocence, purity, and virginity. It is considered to be the color of perfection.

White means safety, purity, and cleanliness. As opposed to black, white usually has a positive connotation. White can represent a successful beginning. In heraldry, white depicts faith and purity.

In advertising, white is associated with coolness and cleanliness because it’s the color of snow. You can use white to suggest simplicity in high-tech products. White is an appropriate color for charitable organizations; angels are usually imagined wearing white clothes. White is associated with hospitals, doctors, and sterility, so you can use white to suggest safety when promoting medical products. White is often associated with low weight, low-fat food, and dairy products.

 

Black Color  Black

Black is associated with power, elegance, formality, death, evil, and mystery.

Black is a mysterious color associated with fear and the unknown (black holes). It usually has a negative connotation (blacklist, black humor, ‘black death’). Black denotes strength and authority; it is considered to be a very formal, elegant, and prestigious color (black tie, black Mercedes). In heraldry, black is the symbol of grief.

Black gives the feeling of perspective and depth, but a black background diminishes readability. A black suit or dress can make you look thinner. When designing for a gallery of art or photography, you can use a black or gray background to make the other colors stand out. Black contrasts well with bright colors. Combined with red or orange – other very powerful colors – black gives a very aggressive color scheme.

Clothing isn’t just about covering your body to be protected from the elements. When you wear something, you are telling the world a little about yourself. If you want to have the right message for your custom T-shirt, you have to take the time to create something with meaning. When it come to designing a t-shirt for you business, school, sports team, event, or organization, follow these great design tips.

Stand Out with Color Schemes

While some people might be comfortable with a basic color, the importance of contrasting colors can’t be overstated. It’s not just about the colors of the shirt and the design on it, it’s also about the use of color compared to the current trends in society. By choosing a color that isn’t as common or popular currently, you all but guarantee you will be able to stand out instantly in a crowd. After all, if you are trying to make a statement with your custom T-shirt, then you need your message to be heard and you need people to be attracted to you and your design in the first place.

Create Multiple Versions

Just because you have an initial vision, it doesn’t mean that the vision can’t be refined and improved. Sharing your idea with others for collaboration might mean the difference between a good T-shirt and a full-blown trend. When it comes to getting something you can wear and be proud of, it’s more important to be right than first. By having multiple versions, sizes, placements, and general trial and error, you have a much better shot of creating something unique that will be the talk of the town.

Simplicity

Sometimes details can be great. People love details that are put into works of art, after all, and you can’t discount art even if it is on a T-shirt. That said, less may in fact be more. People’s eyes are going to catch the T-shirt for a split-second and perhaps no longer, so it makes sense to keep things simple. A minimalist approach can still accomplish your goal, so long as you have a simple logo or design with the correct colors, but maybe you don’t need more than that for your specific message.

Pop Culture and Humor Sell

People like to see things that they relate to, but it’s important to put some creativity into something or else you aren’t making a statement, you’re just making a copy. If you can add in something that is already known and familiar to something brand new, you have a much better chance of sparking an instant connection in the viewer’s mind. With the styling expertise of a top T-shirt design company, you truly can make a statement that is instantly accepted and will ensure people wanting to know more as well as wearing it often.

Using a Quality Printer

Finally, if you’re going to go through all of this effort and energy just so you can create a masterpiece of a T-shirt, you have to work a top quality printer! By putting your design into the hands of someone who is inexperienced and unsure of how to use the best industry standards for T-shirt printing, you could wind up with something far less than stellar. The professionals at TeamLine can help you create a T-shirt with a striking message that gets noticed. Visit us online at http://www.utopiagraphix.com

Basics

Screen printing dates back several centuries to ancient China, but it’s far from old-fashioned. It’s also known as silk screening. As you can gather from the name, the procedure involves fine mesh screens used like a stencil. Learn about the basics of this kind of garment printing to figure out if it’s right for your needs.

Artwork

Like every other type of garment printing and embroidery, the process begins with quality artwork. The digital copies of the design need to feature a minimum resolution of 300 DPI. This measurement means there are 300 dots per square inch in the graphic. It’s possible to print multiple colors with crispness and perfect alignment, but screen printing works best for designs with a limited number of colors. Gradients and ombre designs are not done with this printing method, but nearly any other look you want is possible.

Preparing the Screens

Once the printing team receives your artwork, they separate it into layers by color. For example, all the white parts of a design become a separate image. The printer adds register marks so that the various layers are easy to align after separation. Each layer is printed on a see-through material like vellum or plastic film.
At this point the screen that lends its name to the process enters the picture. In the past, these screens were crafted from silk cloth or woven hair. Modern garment printers rely on polyester instead.
A technician covers the mesh with a liquid known as emulsion. The emulsion is light-sensitive. The screen is overlaid with the clear sheets featuring your artwork. When placed in a light box, the emulsion hardens except where covered by your designs. This means the printing specialist simply rinses out the wet emulsion and ends up with a crisp, clear stencil. Each of the separated layers ends up on its own screen.

Printing

Clean and dry screens are used in the printing press. While you might think of an inkjet document printer when you hear the term, the press is much simpler. It’s a large rotating stand with many arms and each arm holds one screen. This press allows the printing specialist to rotate the arms and seamlessly print each layer without having to fuss with changing out ink-covered screens. The press also includes a frame for holding the T-shirt or other garment so it doesn’t move during the process.
The person handling the printing decides which color goes on first and so on based on the final design. The first screen is lowered onto the clamped garment and aligned with the register marks. Ink is poured onto the screen and forced through the mesh with a rubber squeegee. This process continues until the artwork is complete.
Some T-shirt printers still use manual presses, but most rely on automatic devices. A computer controls the movement of the arms, checks the registration, and presses the ink through the screen. Either way, screen printing creates thick layers of ink that pop against the background. It’s one of the most affordable options for creating custom garments. You’ll also appreciate the longevity of today’s screen printing inks. They can handle years of wear and washing without fading or cracking.

Screen Printing 101 http://utopiagraphix.com/hello-world/ Fri, 04 Mar 2016 19:14:24 +0000 http://utopiagraphix.com/?p=1 The post Screen Printing 101 appeared first on Utopia Graphix.

SCREEN PRINTING
Screen printing is a printing technique that uses a woven mesh to support an ink-blocking stencil to receive a desired image. The stencil forms open areas of mesh that transfer ink which can be pressed through the mesh as a sharp-edged image onto a substrate. A squeegee is moved across the screen stencil, forcing ink into the mesh openings for transfer during the squeegee stroke. Basically, it is the process of using a stencil to apply ink onto a substrate, whether it be t-shirts, posters, stickers, vinyl, wood, or other material.

Screen printing is also a stencil method of print making in which a design is imposed on a screen of polyester or other fine mesh, with blank areas coated with an impermeable substance. Ink is forced into the mesh openings by the squeegee and onto the printing surface during the squeegee stroke. It is also known as silkscreen, serigraphy, and serigraph printing. One colour is printed at a time, so several screens can be used to produce a multicoloured image or design.

There are various terms used for what is essentially the same technique. Traditionally the process was called screen printing or silkscreen printing because silk was used in the process prior to the invention of polyester mesh. Currently, synthetic threads are commonly used in the screen printing process. The most popular mesh in general use is made of polyester. There are special-use mesh materials of nylon and stainless steel available to the screen printer. There are also different types of mesh size which will determine the outcome and look of the finished design on the material.

HISTORY
Credit is generally given to the artist Andy Warhol for popularising screen printing identified as serigraphy, in the United States. Warhol is particularly identified with his 1962 depiction of actress Marilyn Monroe screen printed in garish colours.

American entrepreneur, artist and inventor Michael Vasilantone started to use, develop, and sell a rotary multicolour garment screen printing machine in 1960. Vasilantone later filed for patent on his invention in 1967 granted number 3,427,964 on February 18, 1969. The original rotary machine was manufactured to print logos and team information on bowling garments but soon directed to the new fad of printing on t-shirts. The Vasilantone patent was licensed by multiple manufacturers, the resulting production and boom in printed t-shirts made the rotary garment screen printing machine the most popular device for screen printing in the industry. Screen printing on garments currently accounts for over half of the screen printing activity in the United States.

In June 1986, Marc Tartaglia, Marc Tartaglia Jr. and Michael Tartaglia created a silk screening device which is defined in its US Patent Document as, “Multi-coloured designs are applied on a plurality of textile fabric or sheet materials with a silk screen printer having seven platens arranged in two horizontal rows below a longitudinal heater which is movable across either row.” This invention received the patent number 4,671,174 on June 9, 1987, however the patent no longer exists.

Graphic screenprinting is widely used today to create many mass or large batch produced graphics, such as posters or display stands. Full colour prints can be created by printing in CMYK (cyan, magenta, yellow and black (‘key’)).

Screen printing lends itself well to printing on canvas. Andy Warhol, Rob Ryan, Blexbolex, Arthur Okamura, Robert Rauschenberg, Roy Lichtenstein, Harry Gottlieb, and many other artists have used screen printing as an expression of creativity and artistic vision.
