SCREEN PRINTING TECHNIQUES
Screen printing is a classic, and lasting, way to do t-shirt printing. It’s the most popular and often the most economical way to embellish your tees. To create a screen printed t-shirt, OCC breaks each colour of your design into individual screens. Then overlay each individual screen over your garment to lay that ink colour. Each design is completed. OCC screen printing can use any combination of colours with any colour t-shirt. OCC prints across all mediums and will complete your garments with efficient turnaround times.
