What is screen printing?

Screen printing is a printing technique where ink is squeezed through mesh screens directly onto a garment. Each color in the logo requires a unique screen. Screen printing pricing is based on the number of colors being printed.


We use both manual and automatic methods at Burghardt Sporting Goods. The manual process requires a person to load the garments onto a print table, then they will squeeze the ink through the mesh screens; while the automatic process still requires a person to load the clothing onto a print table, this process utilizes an automatic squeegee to push the ink onto the garment. Both processes require that the garments travel through a tunnel dryer to cure the ink.
