We carefully print the textiles selected for you by hand on the best technical machines. We use only the highest quality colors and materials to ensure the highest quality standard. Printing handmade in Munich.
Many years of experience in printing on a wide range of raw materials ensures the optimal selection of the right
ensures the optimal selection of the right textile to achieve a perfect print result. At the beginning of an order, we therefore carefully select the appropriate raw material. We offer both inexpensive and high-quality textiles. The higher the quality of the material, the better the print result: materials with high quality have fine mesh and so fine details can be reproduced better on them.
Our colors are carefully selected, matched to the textile and incorporated in the best possible way to guarantee a pleasant wearing comfort. We use both water-based pigment colors and plastisol colors. In order to achieve a pleasant feel even on dark textiles, we print with etching inks (Discharge), which remove the colour from the fabric. The colour-fast reproduction plays a major role on which we attach great importance. Plastisol colours and pigment colours can be mixed and printed according to Pantone® colour values.
SCREEN PRINTING FAREBN IN DETAIL
WHITE PLASTIC AND WATERCOLOR
Printing white on dark textiles is possible with various ink systems. These include water-based inks and solvent-based plastisol inks. However, the opacity of the color is always important, which is adapted to the design in the given cases. Through the opacity you also have the possibility to achieve certain effects and to design the textile in the best possible way. In this overview we illustrate different possibilities in terms of opacity.
COLOURED PLASTISOL AND WATER-BASED PAINT
To perfectly implement a colored coverage on a dark textile, this works as with pure white printing. Either with an underprint or with a multiple print. You can also control the opacity and achieve certain effects with a small amount of ink. To get a perfect result in the interaction of haptics and coverage, a mixture of etching and regular screen printing is recommended.
DARK PLASTISOL & WATERCOLOUR
Black or coloured printing on light textiles is far less problematic than on dark garments. On light fabrics you have full coverage and there is no need to underprint. This influences the colour application and you get a very fine feel. If desired, a raised layer can be applied to the textile with the appropriate additives to achieve a raised effect.
Screen printing examples from the screen printing shop Arsonists
Here we have printed a two-color screenprint on a black textile of Stanley Stella. Pre + underprint in white + the contrast color yellow.
In this example, we have finished a grey mottled hoody with a four-colour screen print. With multicolored motifs, the register is a very important point that we keep accurately.
This shirt was refined with the so-called etching print. The textile is so to speak extracted the color and in this case additionally overprinted with a beige tone.
COLOUR ACCURACY IN SCREEN PRINTING
In screen printing it is possible to achieve a very nice color accuracy. In accordance with your business colour scheme, we are happy to adapt tones according to Pantone, HKS, RAL or CMYK values.
How it works
The screens are exposed with your motif and a screen printing stencil is created. At those points of the fabric where no color is to be printed according to the print image, the mesh openings of the fabric are made impermeable to color by a stencil. After the creation we brace the screens in a so-called carousel and perfectly match all the individual colours to each other. Now the colour is pressed through the screen with a screen printing squeegee and fixed on the textile by means of a continuous dryer or intermediate dryer in the case of multi-coloured screen printing and thus made durable.
