For - affordable, great for large designs
Against - not economical for small quantities.
Screen printing is one of the earliest methods of t shirt printing. It involves the passing of ink or any other printing medium through a mesh or 'screen' that has been stretched on a frame, and to which a stencil has been applied. The stencil openings determine the image that will thus be imprinted.
When screen printing, one colour at a time is applied and costs increase with each additional colour. Likewise separate screens are required for each colour, and hence, screen charges may be uneconomical if only a small quantity of clothing is required.
There is a setup charge which covers the cost of having the design made into a screen or screens. This charge is a “one off” charge as the screens are then stored for future use. Therefore, if you wanted to place another order in the future with the same design there would be no setup charge.
