A BREAKDOWN OF THE SCREEN PRINTING PROCESS
What is screen printing?
Screen Printing has been around since 960 AD, originating in China during the Song Dynasty. It is considered one of the most versatile ways of modern printing and can be used to apply print to textiles, paper, and glass. T-Shirt Screen printing, also known as silk screening or silk screen printing, is the technique of using a stencil or “screen” to print inks directly to the surface of a garment. This method is the most cost effective way to reproduce the same image on multiple piece runs. Screen Printing is an art, a science and a labor of love. Hittn’ Skins is a printing company that mainly screen prints T-Shirts. You really have to love printing t-shirts to go through the tedious and detail oriented steps repeatedly time after time and day after day to do it as a career. Our passion to create perfectly printed T shirt Graphics is what keeps us going & keeps us growing. The staff at HS keeps this notion in the forefront of each day and throughout all of our operations.
Why are we different?
With an annual industry value of $3 billion, over 5,000 businesses currently operate in the screen printing industry. What makes Hittn’ Skins so different?
We are a Brick & Mortar Local Business that thrives on service. We are a Quality & Creativity based Branding Company who offers in house high-quality Screen printing, DTG Printing & Wide Format Vinyl Graphics. Much more than just a T-shirt company, Graphic Design Studio or Sign Shop, we posses a true passion for our industry and strive to make everything coming out of our doors absolutely as amazing as it possibly can. Even the most basic order has the potential to be the next big thing. Sometimes our customers appreciation and sincere gratitude can be worth more to our team than the revenue itself.
