Screenprinting

Silk screen printing is the technique of creating a picture or pattern by forcing ink onto a surface through a mesh screen. We offer a wide array of different screen printing techniques that can fit to whatever you need. Any confusion or for immediate assistance call or email us.

First Step: Choose type of printing process

Second Step: Artwork

Sending us your logo or digital art

To have your logo screen printed on apparel or accessories, a 'screen' (or 'stencil') of your logo or art has to be made. But don't worry, we will take care of that part. Our art department will take the necessary steps to prepare your art for this process. All we need from you is your art!

Third Step: Ink Colors

We have a list of our "standard" ink colors. If you need a custom PMS color they are custom mixed at $35 per color.
*For specialty ink colors/embellishments please contact us.

Standard Ink Colors

Fourth Step: Screens

Every design has to have a screen containing a 'stencil' of the art in order to transfer it onto a garment. For every color in your design, a separate screen is needed. College Hype requires that new screens are produced for all NEW artwork submitted. Screens can be re-used if a customer wishes to re-order.

If a file is not truly vector-based, submit the original file format. Gradients/older versions of software may cause problems in translation. Please submit a matching pixel image (such as jpg) so that the art can be verified upon opening.

  • TIF
  • PSD (Adobe Photoshop)
  • JPG
  • BMP
  • GIF
  • PNG
  • RESOLUTION – 300 DPI MINIMUM at FINAL size

For embroidery, jpg and bmp are preferred formats. Photographs MUST BE ACTUAL SIZE or larger or loss of detail is probable.


'CAMERA READY' ARTWORK

  • Glossy or high quality paper
  • As large as possible
  • Print with highest quality ink setting

NOT RECOMMENDED:

  • DOC (Microsoft Word)
  • XLS (Microsoft Excel)

  • Other file formats such as Publisher, Virtual Card, etc. not acceptable

Pixel images CAN be extracted from Office files with extra processing time. If a logo was created with a Microsoft Office Application, a camera ready printout as large as possible is more effective than submitting the actual computer file.
