Custom Silk Screened
The National Flag Company also offers the option for Silk Screen Printing. The majority of t-shirts are printed this way. With this method we can only print on light colored backgrounds. Screen Printing is recommended on larger quantity orders that only have 1 or 2 colors. 6 piece minimum.
We have 6 60 ft. screening tables that can handle flags up to 5 X 8 ft. in size. The process goes like this:
- Our artists take your artwork and make a film.
- We take that film and place is on a screen and shoot a 6oo watt light at it for a couple minutes to burn the image into the mesh screen. We wash the screen off with water and your logo appears.
- Your colors are mixed and we manually drag the squeegee across the screen to lay the ink down.
- After the ink dries it is off to the sewing department for finishing.
- Then the process is complete
