After the art has
been approved. We need to output the film that we use to make the screens.
to give you an idea of what we are saving you, take a look at these
prices taken from *another* film output business
THESE PRICES TAKEN FROM A FILM OUTPUT SITE
Apparel-Printers only charges $12.00 for spot colors on SOME orders.
The film fees for a process print job are $25 per color. This
is a one time charge. We
will let you know in your initial quote if there will be any film
fees for your project.
Turning out the lights:
of the art is then pre-registered and checked for detail and quality:
the art is completely approved in-house we send the job to our screen
The first step in the screen department is to coat the screens with
a photosensitive emulsion
Next, the screen dries, it's placed on the vacuum light
table and exposed with a 3000 watt metal halide light.
After being exposed
the screens are then washed out with a pressure washer at around 1300
Once the image is washed out it is double checked with the films
The Actual Printing Process:
Each color in the
design must be blocked, taped, setup, and squeegeed. For smaller runs,
we use one of our manual presses, for larger runs with more colors,
we use our 8 head automatic press. By "flashing" or drying
the ink between each color layer, we are able to give you bright, professional
quality printing, with years of wear and tear :-)
There you have it.
Most ALL other companies charge for this process.
Apparel-Printers is truly in the business of saving you money.
It is rare in this day and age to actually get something for free.
