The Screen Printing Process:
The in-house custom art department creates a design to your specifications. Once the artwork is approved our artists separate the colors and print them each onto transparent film positives. The film positives are then placed against the light sensitive emulsion applied to our silk screens and exposed or "burned" to create a printable stencil. An experienced printer then sets the screens up on a printing press and prints the garments according to the artwork specifications using a variety of textile inks. The ink is cured on the garment using a conveyer oven. All printed garments then go through a quality control process to ensure that they meet the Team Express high level of quality standards. As you can see we take a great deal of pride in our facility and guarantee all of the products that we produce.
The Embroidery Process:
The In-house embroidery digitizer creates art via the customer's specifications. Once the artwork is approved the digitizer sends the digitized graphic to our very own embroidery department. It is here that our embroidery specialist sets the machines to sew the garment by threading the specified colors and hooping the garment so it can be attached to the embroidery machines. Once the product is attached to the machine the design can then be sewn into it. Our embroidery department can accommodate both very small and very large quantities of product.
