Full printing process

For such designs to please the eye, our team must first perform a number of precise actions and procedures.
Each of these stages is equally important, and any error can cost dearly.

The end result is a great satisfaction of our employees, recipients and users.

See what the full printing process looks like.

Preparation For Printing.

  • The graphic artist separates the pattern (in this case, a picture of strawberries into 3 colours). Each colour is presented separately as black.​
  • The project prepared in this way is transferred by means of a printing plotter to the so-called diapositive, i.e. special film foils.​
  • The screen print template mesh is covered with a special light-curing emulsion.​
  • Drying the template takes several minutes.​

Creating The Template.

  • The films are placed on the dried matrices. Each film with a separate colour on a different matrix.
  • Exposing the emulsion to UV light takes several seconds.
  • After removing the film, the templates are rinsed with water.
  • Then they go to the drying chamber again.

Direct Print.

  • Applying plastisol paint. Each colour has to land on the corresponding matrix. For example, red for a matrix with a picture of strawberries, etc.
  • After laborious registration of templates on the device, the shirts are printed.
  • One after the other, each colour is applied to the fabric with high force by using a special rubber.

Drying.

  • Thermal treatment takes place in a chamber called a tunnel where clothing spends the right amount of time.​
  • T-shirt with strawberry print is ready. Now just for the quality control, and the t-shirt goes to packaging, and then directly to the customer.

Clothes and textiles overprints in our company are created using automatic Printex devices.
