Screen Printing


When you are in need of the best in design and creative screen printing look no further.  No matter what the industry our design team can meet your needs.  Our designers have a broad spectrum creative ability to meet the needs of any design requirements. From single color print to full color index printing we have you covered. 

Screen printing can not be paralleled by direct to garment or simulated screen printing.  The direct to garment process satisfies small run jobs that are full color but can not be matched in color vibrancy and detail at a reasonable cost. We have the capabilities to procure and print 1000's of pieces with a fast turn around. If you are looking for a  full color design up to 12 printed colors and have quantities over 60 pcs or a 1,2 or 3 color design can start as low as 24 pcs.  

With our new state of the art printing facility we can handle almost any project.  Let us quote your project.

Contract Printing:  Please give us a call to discuss your contract printing needs.  We facilitate mutiple automatic 12 color presses to expedite your project.
