The Art of Screen Printing with Woven INC

Screen printing is a nuanced process that goes beyond applying artwork to a garment. It involves critical decisions such as selecting the appropriate artwork and films, preparing screens and meshes, and choosing the right inks to achieve the best results for your design. Each colour in your design necessitates its own dedicated screen, layered one after another to bring your final design to life.

At Screen Printing Gateshead, we specialise in plastisol, water-based, and discharge inks. In addition, we offer speciality inks such as puff, gloss, reflective, and glitter. If you have specific preferences for the type of ink to be used in your screen printing project, don't hesitate to discuss your requirements with us. We're here to accommodate your requests and provide you with a comprehensive understanding of the available ink options.

The Advantages of Screen Printing

Screen printing is a cost-effective method for producing large volumes of high-quality prints. Its efficiency and speed make it a popular choice for companies and organisations seeking customised products or promotional items in bulk. While it does require specialised equipment and expertise, screen printing is relatively straightforward to learn and master with the right guidance and tools.

Some key advantages of screen printing include:

Versatility: Screen printing can be applied to a variety of materials, including fabrics, paper, plastics, and metal, making it suitable for a wide range of applications.

Durability: Screen-printed designs are known for their resistance to fading, cracking, and peeling, ensuring long-lasting results, even with frequent use or washing.

Customisation: Screen printing offers a high degree of customisation, enabling you to create unique designs tailored to your project's precise requirements.

Cost-effectiveness: For large quantities, screen printing provides a cost-effective solution, with per-unit costs decreasing significantly after the initial setup.

Vibrant Colours: Screen printing's ability to apply multiple layers of ink results in rich, vivid colours that stand out and captivate.

Consistency: Screen printing consistently delivers high-quality prints, ensuring a polished and professional appearance for your finished products.

Sustainability: Many of the inks used in screen printing are eco-friendly, making it an environmentally responsible printing choice.

Frequently Asked Questions

To address common inquiries about our screen printing services, here are some frequently asked questions:

What are Screen Charges?

Screen charges are one-time expenses that every print shop imposes. It's important to note that paying a screen charge does not grant ownership of the screens themselves; they remain the property of the print shop. At Screen Printing Gateshead, our screen charges are a flat rate of £25 per colour, size, and design. This fee covers the setup and separation of your design by our artwork team to ensure precise sizing and positioning for printing. It also includes the cost of film, screen preparation, and machine setup.

Do You Charge for Colour Changes?

Yes, we do charge for colour changes, especially with smaller orders. Colour changes involve the removal of screens from the printing machine, cleaning, drying, and resetting the machine, which can be a time-consuming process. We charge a £15 fee per colour change, with a minimum requirement of 15 units per change.

Do You Have Minimum Orders?
Minimum order quantities at Screen Printing Gateshead depend on the colours used in your design. Generally, we require a minimum order of 20 pieces per design. However, you have the flexibility to mix and match your minimum orders across different garments and sizes. Below is a breakdown of our minimum order requirements based on the number of screens:

20+ Units = Maximum of 4 Screens
50+ Units = Maximum of 8 Screens
150+ Units = 8 Screens Plus

How Long Does the Process Take?
Our typical turnaround time at Screen Printing Gateshead is up to 14 working days from the approval of your artwork. If your order is ready sooner, we will ship it promptly. During busy seasons, please allow up to 18 working days to receive your order. It's important to note that turnaround times are estimates, and your order may arrive earlier or slightly later than the estimated date.

Can I Preview My Design Before Placing an Order?
We do not provide visual previews of orders before payment at Screen Printing Gateshead. Visualising artwork demands significant time and attention, and we allocate these resources once an order is confirmed and paid for. After you confirm and make payment for your order, our design team will create a visual representation of your order for your approval before proceeding with printing. Approval directly to our design team is required before any production begins.

What Size Prints Can I Have?
The maximum print sizes and locations on T-shirts are based on standard guidelines, and sizing may vary depending on the product and its size. Screens and prints are one size fits all, and oversized screens are available upon request, with pricing and sizing provided on an individual basis. Keep in mind that if you have a mix of small and large garments, the print size will be consistent with the smallest garment, which may appear larger on smaller items and smaller on larger items.
