The Art of T-shirt Printing

May 6, 2014

When it comes to St. Louis T-shirt printing, there is a tremendous difference between one screen printing company and another. They are not all created equal. We will give them all the benefit of the doubt that they can all produce a simple one or two color image. What separates the men from the boys in the silk screening industry is a company’s ability to replicate the most complex of artwork. It all starts with the person generating good artwork that is conducive to applying it on a T-shirt. There are a lot of accomplished graphic artists out there who know how to make an image jump off of a computer monitor, but that in no way lends itself to the screen printing process. For example, an image that is 70 dots per square inch resolution can look good from a monitor, but that will in no way lend itself to a good clean silkscreen application. We would consider 300 dots per inch to be optimal. Applying an image to a 100 percent cotton or a 50 percent cotton 50 percent polyester substrate through a fine mesh and using a plastic ink is a completely different type of application. If the artist who is composing the image has no firsthand experience when it comes to tee shirt printing then you are much better off leaving it in the hands of somebody who has. With today’s technology we have the advantages of being able to outsource our artwork to any graphic designer in the world. Therefore, it is not necessary that they are located in St. Louis. With the advantage of being able to e-mail information at the speed of light halfway around the world, one has a whole lot of options when deciding where they are going to get the best overall value on their artwork and logo development. We are a St. Louis T-shirt printing company who prides ourselves in our ability to provide you with a great finished product and still work within the confines of what your budget will allow.

In this way, the referrals and repeat orders will simply take care of themselves. By the way, we also provide custom embroidery.
