Screen Printing is a popular process which is
usually done by using a fine mesh screen onto a substrate. You can find three
components in this printing process: Art, Screens, and the Print. For a Screen
Printing Company or press, each of the components is equally
important, since if one component is not up to the mark, the whole process will

Screen Printing Process:
Large Format Screen
Printing process actuall starts with the art room. The
clients send us an idea and we make it a reality. We first design and send an
initial mock up to the client for approval. Once the client has approved the
artwork on the virtual mock up, we break down the design into separate colors.
This is a fairly difficult and complex process and can only be performed by a
professional Jtees Printing company. And this is where we can offer our
years of experience to the clientele.
Once the design is separated, it is then etched
to a screen using a design exposure unit. The quality of the printing screen
should of high quality, so that the outcome of the print is the best. If you
use a loose screen, the clarity and saturation will be sacrificed. Here in
Jtees Printing company, we have the finest screens available to get the job
done right so that it shows the actual detail of the given image.
The process of preparing the screen is vital
for screen printing. Once we complete with making the screen, it’s the time to
proceed with the print. We owe it to our customers since we use a high
technology that the industry has to offer. The ink used in the screen printing
is vital and not all inks are created equal. At Jtees prints we have mastered
the art of screen printing and formulated the perfect screen printing ink that
our customer deserves.

graphic Designers who are capable of bringing design idea to life. You just
need to give your idea and we will help you visualize the same on to the design

design concept, you can share it with us because this will speed up the large
format screen printing process.
Foil Screen Printing:
Foil stamping is a special effect that gives a
brilliant metallic finish. It can be applied to almost any garment substrate
that can withstand the heat and curing process of a typical screen-printing.
The main limitation is that the foil will adhere to Plastisol ink, so single
color or water-based imprints are recommended. Colors available are generally:
Gold, Silver, Copper, Pink, Red, Purple, Royal, and a variety of psychedelic
4 color process
A printing technique where the artwork is
created using dots (CMYK) which combine to create a full spectrum of colors
needed for photographic prints. This means a large number of colors can be
printed using only 4 screens, making the set-up costs viable. The inks are
required to blend and are more translucent. It can compromise the vibrancy of
colors. It is difficult to achieve exact PMS colors with 4cp printing, but it
is possible to add additional spot colors if needed. 4 color process is best
when used on white and light colored shirts.
Plastisol is the most common ink used in
screen-printing. They are particularly useful for printing opaque graphics on
dark fabrics. Advantages: Plastisol is recommended for printing on colored fabrics.
On lighter and dark fabric, Plastisol is extremely opaque and will result in a
bright, vibrant color. Plastisol is the easiest ink to match exact PMS colors.
The ink is made up of PVC particles suspended in a plasticizing emulsion.
Because of this, the ink will not dry in the screen, allowing a long consistent
print run with lower reject rates. Disadvantages: Plastisol inks result in a
thicker hand and heavier imprint.Because of this, Plastisol ink is not
recommended for specialty applications such as printing over seams, collars and
