To understand the time and care that is taken into each silk screen printed
job, we thought it would be helpful to show you what happens each time we have
job to print.
The first step is you sending us your artwork when you place your order through
our PrintMojo system.
Once we have the artwork, it gets sent to our art department for processing.
They take a look at your printing instructions and come up with a composite
proof for you so you can see what your design will look like on the t-shirts
(or hats, sweatshirts, baby doll tees or other garments).
proofs will show you the ink colors to be used on your order, the print
size dimensions for your artwork, and it will confirm the specific print locations
you have instructed us to print.
At this time, you can instruct the art department to make any changes you
see fit. If you'd like different ink colors used in your design, just let
If you'd like it to be printed smaller, just let us know.
don't print your job until you are thrilled with your proof
and you have specifically
approved it for printing. We'll work with you until you are 100% satisfied with

Once the image is washed out, it is double
checked with the films for accuracy.
The Actual Printing Process:
color in the design needs a screen and each screen must be blocked,
taped, setup, and squeegeed.
Just imagine if we had to do this each time a t-shirt
was ordered. You can see why screen printing was designed to print
quality garments in bulk quantities.
For smaller runs, we may use one of our manual presses. For larger
runs with more colors, we use our 8 head automatic press.
By "flashing" or
drying the ink between each color layer, we are able to give you
bright, professional quality printing, with years of wear and tear
There you have it. Most ALL other companies charge for this process.
PrintMojo is truly in the business of saving you
time and money.
