Set-up and Screen Charges
We try to keep things as simple as possible, so set-up charges are included. There are no added fees for set-up or screens charges.
On certain jobs and logos, we may be able to switch an ink color for another in the same price quantity. There are factors that may not make it possible to do an ink change. New art may need to be created and charged as separate run.
We prefer to use fully vector artwork in an Illustrator compatible ai, eps or pdf file. Please make certain all fonts are outlined (converted to curves). If we have any issues, you will be notified to resolve the problem. We accept any art you have, but it may be subject to art charges billed at a rate of $60/hour, $30 minimum.
Typically, plastisol ink is the most common process we do, but we also offer several specialty inks and processes to best suit your needs for each job.
Standard Plastisol Inks
Silver Screen prints primarily plastisol inks using the Rutland ink mixing system. It is a licensed mixing system to simulate Pantone colors out of the Solid Coated Swatch Library Book. If PMS colors are not specified in art or on portal, we will use Adobe Illustrator’s color converting tool to pick the closest match.
Soft Hand is used for that comfortable vintage feel. A special additive is mixed into the plastisol ink, thinning it down for a softer feel. Due to the nature of this process, exact PMS matches are not the typical result.
Inner Tag Printing
Ideal for clothing lines and retail jobs. We print your art and garment information right on the inside back collar. There are guidelines that need to be followed, so if you are interested, please contact us for details.
