Spot-Color Screen Printing
We currently offer contract-screen printing for spot-color designs. Spot color printing uses pre-mixed inks to print the colors in the design being printed. We are not offering CMYK (process) screen printing services at this time, but may consider this in the future. If you have any questions about if your design should be printed as spot color or process color, please give us a call to review your artwork or email your art and questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please provide the name of your company and your ASI number. We are always open to considering an exception to help you achieve success.
We currently offer contract printing using plastisol inks. Plastisol inks are the most common type of inks used for screen printing on garments. We may offer other types of inks/processes in the future. Please check in if you have any questions.
Please review our current list of screen printing inks colors available. This can be viewed at www.special-tees.com>General Info>Our Ink Colors. Don’t see a color you want? Please give us a call. We can see about ordering for you.
