There are many things which you would like to get in the market but you would feel better to keep some of them if they are customized. You may like to buy t-shirts which would show your oneness when you are together. If you will just shop all these items, you will never give them high value because you can just see them everywhere. But, if one person who is special to you finds time to buy any of the items but provide some customized imprints there, then, it will be a different story.
Thsirt Printing 101: The Ink:
This is one area where there is a lot of confusion. The ink manufacturer told you that the stuff in the can was "Ready for Use" (RFU). That means just slop it in the screen and "pump up" to make a print. RFU is one of the greatest lies ever told.
What makes sense about getting those items is that if you will desire to extend them to all the people close to your heart and let their favorite images be printed on those things. If somebody celebrates his birthday, he would never want to ask you to bring him a new car since it is very expensive and ideal. He will be so blessed to have you as a friend and would also do the same if you will be celebrating your natal day. A family reunion is one thing that you want to hold so if you want to have a good time with them, you should be creative enough about sending each person a souvenir item like shirts. However, the people who will be receiving those shirts would be happy to get one if those have custom imprints of the name of the clan.
You can also do the same if you are spearheading a class reunion. Just ask your classmates what they want to get after the reunion so you can easily buy a bulk and send them to a printing company to customize them.
Thsirt Printing 101: Curing Ink On Printed Shirts
Remove your shirt from the press and run through a tee shirt belt oven making sure it reaches optimum temperature by the time it emerges from the exit point and falls into a catch box.
Under cured ink can wash out and over cured ink can prematurely flake off and crack. For about $30 to $40 you can buy a temp gun with a laser sight. Point the laser sight at the ink on the shirt as it is still 4 to 6 inches still inside the oven chamber and take a reading. It should have reached your optimum temperature for your brand of ink, typically between 320 to 340 degrees Fahrenheit. Check with your ink vendor on this
It is essential to find a printing company which offers custom imprint services. Since there are many to choose from, you should take some tips on how to get the right pick.
Thsirt Printing 101: De-Hazing
After removing the stencil and rinsing well, apply some of your haze remover in the manner described by the vendor. Follow the specific instructions for your haze remover and rinse well with your pressure washer. Allow the screen to dry. Now you are ready to start the whole process over again.
Haze removers are probably the most hazardous chemicals to work with in screen printing. There are many new products that are more user and environment friendly. Do some research to find the best chemicals for your usage.
You have to know that a particular company needs to be flexible in giving the right services. All items which you wish to have an imprint should be accepted. You will never have problems about letting any time to be printed as they could simply get it done right away.
Another factor is the price. It will be beneficial on your part if they could give you quotes and discounts depending on the number of items that you wish to be custom printed.
The quality of work has to be evaluated also. Some printing companies are better than the others so if you really want to bank on quality of work, then, you need to get a sample and see what you can get.
