According to the Wikipedia definition, silk- screen printing is a permeographic printing technique which today uses a polyester fabric as a matrix, stretched over a wooden or metal frame, called a “silk-screen frame” or “silk-screen frame”. Screen printing fabric” is another name for this materialAll clear? Not exactly?

Then try seeing it this way: cut out a piece of paper, for example the outline of a cat that you have previously drawn; then place the paper cutout on an “empty” t-shirt, and pour some ink over the cutout, so that it can filter through the cutout to the t-shirt, leaving the outline of the cat on the t-shirt itself. Much clearer that way, isn’t it? Well, screen printing works like the process of positioning a cutout and “pouring” ink, except that it is a more refined process: instead of using the cutout of paper, in fact, a silk net is used/ polyester where the mesh parts are blocked using impenetrable ink.

How to create the perfect t-shirt screen printing

Let’s get to the creative part, that is, the design of your screen-printed t-shirts. To begin, you must adhere to these three basic guidelines:

● choice of garment (material, shape, colour)

● choice of graphics

● choice of colors to use for printing

We have said that the materials on which the technique can be used are many. For your t-shirt screen printing you can therefore choose from cotton to technical fabrics, such as sports ones. This way you will have a very wide range of items to choose from and you will be able to decide on the style of t-shirt you like best. The second step is the most creative of all and includes designing the graphics you want to print on the garment. Let’s get creative, always remembering that screen printing is more suitable for more stylized designs and with intense shades of color. For super detailed images rich in pastel shades we recommend digital printing, another technique always proposed by Dallas T Shirt Printing for the customization of your clothing items. The third and final step is to decide which colors to use in the graphics that will then be printed. T-shirt screen printing is based on the overlapping of multiple inks which, when mixed, create color shades. It is therefore recommended to choose a few main colours, but not too many, to allow each ink to create the right light-dark contrast. This way you can get your beautiful and original silk-screened t-shirts!
