How Much Does Screen Printing Cost?

Screen printing is the process of using a woven mesh to support an ink-based stencil.  This stencil can then form and transfer any image or color onto any piece of clothing such as a hat, t-shirt, sweatshirt and more.

This process usually works best when the article is made of a polyester material, but it can be done to other fabrics as well.

Screen printing is a great way to create custom gear for your place of business, school or sports team.
