Logo Set Up Fee: Covers the silk screen preparation and materials that go into each logo screen prior to your order. The logo set up fee is incurred per color in the logo. Example- if you have a 2 color logo, it is 2 logo set up fees. Since we do not store the screens, this fee is incurred every time you plan on using a logo.
Logo Swipe Fee: The cost to apply the logo to the shirt. It is calculated by determining how many times the squeegee presses ink through the screen and onto the shirt. Each separate color necessitates its own pass. More colors means more passes, and by extension, more swipe fees that are charged. Each separate logo location necessitates its own pass. More logo placements, means more swipe fees.
Screen Printing- An image is transferred to the printed surface by ink, which is pressed through a stenciled screen and treated with a light-sensitive emulsion. Film positives are put in contact with the screens and exposed to a light, hardening the emulsion not covered by film and leaving a soft area on the screen for the squeegee to press ink through. Also, you must create a different screen for every color you are going to print, and then screen each color separately, allowing drying time in between. Artwork is produced on a transparent decal, than applied to product. Our screen printing technicians set up the screens so they match the logo placement and location. Once secured and set the ink is pushed through the screen and forced onto the materials surface. The ink is than cured at a high temperature for longevity. Silk screening is high quality and long lasting.
