- Screen: Now that you have provided or approved the design that will be on your custom tees, our team of screen printing professionals will prepare a screen that acts as a stencil and has the design you want.
- Color: To be able to print the design on your custom t shirts, we must then perfectly match the colors from the design to the right screen printing inks that last for many washes and are flexible with the fabric while maintaining crisp lines and brilliant color.
- Press: Now comes the fun part. The next step in producing your Edwardsville, IL custom t shirts is to print the ink on the shirts. Fire up the screen printing press.

- Dry: The ink passes through the screen in the shape of your design and then rests on the shirt. But to finalize the design and make sure the ink stays, the custom t shirt has to be cured. By applying heat to the printed shirt, the screen printing ink transforms into a solid. The design is there to stay.
