Customized Screen printing produces vibrant and bold designs that are perfect for promoting your business or charity. It can also create durable designs for your sports team or group events.
Screen printing involves creating a stencil (screen), and then using that stencil to apply layers of ink on the printing surface. Each color is applied using a different stencil, one at a time, combined to achieve the final look. When creating a design, keep in mind the more colors you use in screen printing the cost increase.
What is Screen Printing?
Screen printing is a method of decorating custom apparel using inks, which are passed through a mesh screen to achieve your design. In screen printing, your logo or design is exposed onto the screen, washed out, set-up on our press, and using a squeegee-type blade the ink is passed through the screen onto the shirt.
Is there a difference between screens printed shirts and vinyl heat transfer shirts?
The heat transfer printing method applies custom designs to items like T-shirts or tablecloths through a process that used a combination of heat and pressure. Common kinds of heat transfer printing include vinyl heat transfer and digital print heat transfer, with the vinyl heat transfer process, a machine us used to cut out designs and letters in pieces of colored vinyl. A heat press is then used to transfer each vinyl color of the design onto the object being printed. With digital print heat transfer, the desired graphic is first digitally printed on special heat transfer paper using a solvent ink. This type of ink allows the design to be transferred from the paper to the item being printed when pressed with heat. With both these types of heat transfer, a heat press machine will be needed to transfer the graphic, either vinyl or digitally printed, from one surface to another, this magical combination of heat and pressure that transfers the design!
What kind of ink do you use?
Terry Trophy uses Plastisol inks that are free from harmful phthalates and lead which are verified and laboratory tested to the highest standards in the world. in our decorating process, we use natural and biodegradable products and chemicals.

We can have nearly all artwork recreated or digitized where necessary. While vector files are always preferred, we will accept all of the following artwork file formats (.ai, .psd, .pdf, .cdr, .eps, .tiff, .jpg, .jpeg, .bmp, .png, .doc, .docx, .ppt, .pptx).
What if I want to use a previous artwork design?
You can use previous artwork at no charge; if we have it on file you don’t have to upload it again. We keep the files for you.
The artwork charge is for our “artist” to prepare a custom logo design for screen printing, by separating each colour on a separate layer, creating base and colour layers, and then highlighting them. They also have to make sure that each layer has crop marks, registration marks, colour info, screen mesh info, and print sequence.
What is the maximum size you can screen print my design?
The maximum screen print size for a design varies depending on the garment and the location where you would like your design screen printed.
What is the minimum quantity to order?
For screen printing we require 12 minimum.
