The T-Shirt Printing Process

STEP ONE – Make your order.

You know you need to have some t-shirt printing done for your upcoming occassion, work group, sports team, or something else. You contact your shop to place the order and that is where the Weldon Spring, MO t-shirt printing journey begins. When you order your shirts, you will have to determine the:

  • Shirt brand, style, material, and color
  • Ink type and color(s)
  • Design to be printed

Don’t sweat it if you are intimidated by the thought of creating a design and making all these choices! STL Shirt Co. can give you advice and assurance through the entire t-shirt printing process. Use our professional printers and designers. For assistance in creating the perfect logo or design rely on our professional design team. We can also help you select the right shirt and ink colors.

STEP TWO – We create the screen

Once you determine your design, we get to work on making the screen that will be used to get your design printed on your shirts. First, we print the design on a transparent sheet of film. Depending on the specifics of your order, our t-shirt printing experts will select the best mesh screen to use in printing your shirts. To the screen, we apply a substance called emulsion, which is sensitive to light. We place the film with your design on it on the screen and the screen is exposed to light. The design on the film blocks the light from reaching the coated screen in the shape of your design, and the rest of the emulsion hardens in the light. This produces the stencil.

For designs with more than one color ink, we repeat the process above, making a screen for each color in the design.

STEP THREE – We print.

Then, it is time to add the ink. Screen printing such as t-shirt printing typically uses a special ink called plastisol. Have you ever noticed how, on a printed shirt, you can feel the texture of the design, but it is still soft and flexible? That’s plastisol for you. It is great due to its ability to withstand p washes, move with the flexibility of the fabric, and display vibrantly on a shirt of any color.

Next, we mount the prepared screens to a printing press, with each shirt pulled taut and placed on a plate below. We are very careful to make sure everything is registered and lined up precisely so to make sure the design is printed in the right position on your t-shirt. We add ink onto the screen and pass a squeegee from end to end of the screen to apply and press the ink onto the shirt. We repeat this for every single t-shirt in your order, and if your design has more than one color, we repeat it for each color on every shirt. It takes skill to get the ink just right so it looks bright and keeps the sharp lines from your original design. Lucky for you, our t-shirt printing team has mad skills.

STEP FOUR – The ink cures.

Now your awesome design is on your shirts! But they aren’t ready to go yet. After the ink is applied, the ink has to cure. In other words, we have to turn the ink from a liquid into a solid so it stays on your t-shirts. In order to make this happen we have to apply heat to the ink. Ink curing is a science, and it’s possible to damage the shirt or the print if you use the wrong temperature or cure it for the wrong length of time. You can rest assured that we have the curing process figured out, so you know your prints will come out great.

STEP FIVE – You get your shirts!

Once the ink is cured, it means that your t-shirts are officially printed! We fold the shirts up neatly and pass the finished product off to you. We will package them up and have your shirts or other printed items ready in only a handful of days. If you need it, ask us about shipping your order to you. For those last-minute situations when you need your t-shirts ready in a week or less, use our rush printing services.

Choosing a Partner for Weldon Spring, MO T-Shirt Printing

Custom screen printed t-shirts are a fun opportunity that can be effective for many different purposes. But not all t-shirt printing is equal. With printed garments or any screen printed products, the difference between what an established and respected printing shop can do and what school children ironing on decals in their basement can do is immense. We cheer on aspiring garment decorators and certainly don’t have anything against out-of-the-basement operations (many great screen printing shops began there!). Still, you will see a distinct disparity in the quality, customer service, and abilities you have access to when you choose an established and skilled t-shirt printing company for the Weldon Spring, MO area like STL Shirt Co.

The cherry on top of it all is that we are a union screen printing shop. Having your Weldon Spring, MO t-shirt printing done by a union shop means that the people printing your t-shirts have had extensive training and have proven their talent in what they do. Not only that, but shopping at a union shop for t-shirt printing or anything else allows you to support excellent working conditions and participate in the local and US economy. The next time you have a Weldon Spring, MO t-shirt printing order, make the choice to support a union print shop.
