This is a subreddit specifically devoted to the art and crafts of serigraphy(screen printing). We welcome most posts, typically: questions, interesting links, tips&tricks, and shameless self promotion.
We want to offer "print on demand" for a few of our regular customs and are looking at doing this with Plastisol Transfers. My goal is to get an order for a single shirt and be able to just grab the transfer and have the shirt ready later that same day, we are charging a premium for the service. Are there any tips/tricks I should be aware of before giving this a go? Like single color vs. multi-color transfers? Any issues doing front and back or sleeves? We have a screen printing shop and thought about making the transfers ourselves, but also considering just buying them since my press is usually booked up all week for production. Are there any companies you would recommend? And does the quality feel the same as a regular screen printed shirt? We would be mostly transferring to a Bella 3001 or Next Level 6210 shirt.
One thing i dont wanna mess up that i have not been able to properly word on google apparently cause they are no help is, when getting your transparencies printed you need to flip the image horizontally right ? ~ sorry if this is a silly question i dont wanna mess anything up
I like to take real photos and run them through photoshop and use posterize etc and such to get black and white stencil style images. What type of photos make the easiest and most detailed images? Like what is ideal lighting to take photos before running the, through photoshop that preserves some of the finer details of an image? What type of photos should I be taking? Any thoughts or tips. Does make question make sense? It is late ha
