Here at Silver Screen, we strive to be on the cutting edge of new technologies, new processes and products in our industry. We are looking to expand our services in the near future to better serve you with a variety of the latest equipment and systems. Currently, we offer Digital Transfer, Screen Print Transfer, and Laser capabilities. There are exciting upgrades on our horizon, so please keep checking back to see what other great things we can do for you.
This is a full color process that lends itself well to smaller runs on a variety of textiles. We print art provided on a special substrate with a full color digital printer. It actually prints and cuts the image too size and it is ready to go to the heat press area where we adhere it to whatever item you wish; T-shirts, polos, pants, jackets, bags, or hats. Using this method, it is better to have simplified art that allows for minimal weeding of substrate from tiny details; text for instance.
Screen Printed Transfers
Occasionally there are products that are not well suited for the usual screen printing process. Such as 2-ply shorts, jackets, swimsuits, oversized bags, or small totes. In these cases, if the art is too detailed to use our Digital Transfer method, we use this other heat press process. The design is actually silk screened with standard plastisol inks on a special sheet of transfer paper that is heat press transferred onto items. For best results, we limit this to 3 colors of ink.
Laser etching is a great new service we’ve added for leather, glass, thermos, or wood. With this machine, we can even provide custom leather patches that our Embroidery Department can then sew on to your garments.
For best results submit a high-resolution digital art file at desired final size of output at 600dpi.
DTG-Direct to Garment Printing
This is a process that is similar to a larger format ink-jet printer. It will enable us to print virtually anything directly on almost any garment. We are looking into getting a DTG system in the coming year. If this is a service you are looking for, keep us in mind and check in occasionally. We look forward to being able to get that done for you and your clients.
THIS IS EXCITING!!!
