The thing that sets us apart from other screen printing shops is our in-house creative department. Work together with our team to design the perfect shirts for your shelves. Our team's design work will fall into one of the following three catagories:

PRINT READY ARTWORK

We will take your logo and brand artwork and place it where you envision it on your garments. With this option you can retain design control, while our team optimizes the artwork for printing.

ARTWORK ADJUSTMENT

If you have a certain look in mind, but don’t have the artwork produced- let us know what you have envisioned and leave it up to our design team to work their magic.

CUSTOM ART

Our design team can work beyond standard logo placement and create innovative custom art that won’t look like anything you’ve ever seen.

*Those projects that require intricate hand illustrations or complicated design work are not included in our complimentary portfolios and may incur an additional hourly fee.

ARTWORK PREP

When preparing the artwork for printing, each color must be separated and burned into screens. The ink colors are pushed through the screens in a specific layer order to achieve the final design. In order to get the artwork ready for production we need to ensure that the design is the right size and file format. The best formatting options are below.

PRINT TECHNIQUES

Classic

Plastisol

Image

Plastisol is the industry standard for screen printing. This ink is great for color matching and achieving small details. Plastisol ink works on most colors and textiles and provides the most consistent results.

SOFT

Discharge Ink

Image
Discharge inks use a special chemical formula that basically acts as a bleaching agent to pull out the garment color and replace it with the ink. This process leaves virtually no texture to the print. Due to the chemical dyeing process, exact color matching and dye migration can be problematic depending on the garment and ink colors used.

ECO-FRIENDLY

Water-Based Ink

Image

Water-base ink is environmentally friendly and absorbs directly into the fabric leaving your garment with a super soft hand-feel.

SPOT COLOR
Standard bold, single-color inks. Each color represents a new screen.

INK COLORS

Ink Choices Icon

Choose from a number of stock ink colors or have us match your brand's custom Pantone colors. We do everything we can to ensure that each color is mixed perfectly, however there are always a number of variables that determine how the final colors appear on the garment.

THINGS TO CONSIDER

We understand that every brand has a unique vision, and we offer some different styles to speak to your particular customer base or artistic vision. When speaking in terms of Screen Printing- a “layer” represents a “screen” that the ink is pushed through. Keep in mind that we price per screen when considering the different styles.  Here are some other things to consider:

Printing a white under-base makes your selected colors “pop” off of the garment and look brighter when working with darker colors. You can under-base with 1 or 2 layers of white depending on your intended results. If you need to match a color exactly, our production team will need to white under-base with 2 layers of white.

1 Layer of White       |       2 Layers of White

Frequently Asked Questions


We have a number of stock inks available for you to choose from. If you do not see the color you are looking for, we can mix a custom Pantone color for a $15 charge.

We will create a portfolio completely free of charge with either new artwork or using your own. Our hope is that you’ll love something from the portfolio enough to move forward with. Once the order is placed, you’ll be charged $125 for a custom design.

A vector file is an editable raw design file created with shapes, curves, points, polygons, strokes and color fills. Vector graphics allow designers to expand or reduce the vector graphic in size without any loss in quality. Acceptable formats include .ai, .eps, or a high resolution PDF. If you don’t have a vector, in most cases we can re-create the artwork and vectorize it. A custom design fee is charged in these instances- this is fee will be based on the complexity of the design.

For screen printed goods, our quality control begins in the art approval stage. We do our best to outline every garment detail, sizing, color, and placement requirements. We inspect each blank garment thoroughly before they go on the press! During the printing process we run each garment through a series of checks in order to verify it's consistency with the approved art sample form. Quality is of the utmost importance to us and we do everything we can to give you a product you can be proud to wear.

For our standard print processes we recommend using no more than 7 spot colors. However, you can use a number of different printing methods that allow for full color photos, halftone gradients, and direct to garment printing. if you are interested in printing complex artwork, let us know and we will recommend the best method for your project.

In short, any custom artwork created by our creative team belongs to Brist. If you reorder a garment with custom art on it, you will NOT have to pay another custom art fee. If you wish to purchase specific usage or exclusive rights for artwork, we will be happy to arrange those licenses.
