Custom Screen Printing is the Cornerstone of Sawtooth Shirts!

Screen Printing along with embroidery is where we started and still comprises the majority of what we do. Whether you are organizing a small family reunion or putting on a large running event we have the skills and know-how to get you the custom apparel you need.

What is Screen Printing?

Screen Printing involves creating a stencil, known as a screen and then using that screen to apply ink on the printing surface. Each individual color is applied using a different screen, one at a time, combined to achieve the final look. The more colors a design has, the more screens that are needed, and the more setup time required.

The ink in screen printing is applied thicker than other types of printing techniques , which results in brighter colors – even on darker shirts. Screen printing is the best option for designs that require a high level of vibrancy, specialty products, or for quantities greater than 10 pieces. While Sawtooth Shirts has no minimums for screen printing, price is usually a prohibitive factor under 12 pieces.
