A shinny Bling look

Foil screen printing is a very popular option to add shimmer to your apparel. It is applied to your garments by first printing your design with a special glue. We then adhere the foil to the glue with our heat press. The combination of heat and pressure seals the foil before the excess is removed. Foil printed t-shirts can be bold, but if designed well, it can bring the art to life and make it really stand out.

A hue ligher/darker than the garment

Tonal printing, a recent popular print style, which we’d like to think is a phrase that we've coined in the screen printing industry, uses water based ink to achieve a hue somewhat lighter (Tonal Light) or somewhat darker (Tonal Dark) than the color of the garment. It creates a very subtle print, so if you’re looking for an out of the box printing style with a vintage edge, tonal light or tonal dark is the way to go.
