Screen Printing

Each project that comes through our shop is unique. Our tiny printers are detailed focused artists, and choose the best ink and technique based on apparel type and your individual needs. Let’s screen print together!

What is Screen Printing?

Screen printing is a process that involves using a squeegee to push ink through a stenciled, mesh screen to transfer a design onto fabric, paper, or other surfaces. Screen printing is our favorite way to print colorful and distinctive designs on apparel such as t-shirts, hoodies, joggers, tanks, crop tops, etc. Because of the set up needed, screen printing is best suited for item runs that use the same graphic. Small runs start at 6 pieces.
