You've picked your textiles, created a design of the shirt and placed your order. So what happens next?The first step to get your design on a t-shirt includes print film for the different colors used. A graphic artist will look at your work and determine the best method of color printing. The two main methods of printing colors are spot colors and four color process. Spot colors are individual colors that are printed separately. There are 100 pre-mixed colors and a rainbow of colors that can be mixed with the specifications (for example, the colors Pantone Matching System). Physically combines four CMYK colors (cyan (blue), magenta (pink), Yellow and Black) in the textile industry to create a variety of colors. Four color process, also known as CMYK, is used to simulate photographic work and sophisticated graphics with shading and texture effects. Printing a hybrid form known as simulated process is sometimes used, the combination of process components and special color printing. The graphic artist creates transparent acetate films for each color and prints in black with registration marks and identifying information. The films are then collected in an envelope with printing instructions and sent to be burned on the screens. Each color of the shirt design is exposed through a box of high intensity light in a fine mesh screen which has been coated with a photosensitive emulsion. These screens were initially made from silk, hence the term source of screen printing. When the emulsion is exposed, it hardens and becomes insoluble to water. The black sections acetate film to prevent light from reaching the emulsion immediately beneath them. The sections that are not exposed is dissolved in water. The display unit is placed in a high pressure wash where the exposed sections of emulsion are washed off the screen. What remains is in fact a complex template for the particular color of ink. While the Department of Art is working on his films, their shirts have been ordered to wholesalers. Sometimes this can be a challenge, you can make calls around the country in search of a certain size or color of the shirt. When they arrive textiles, which are counted and checked against the order of accuracy and then brought to the screen printers. A multi-press head contains a series of screens of only four to sixteen. The screens are arranged radially and turn on pallets that are loaded onto the shirts. There are automatic and manual, automatic rotation is in charge of the air, while small hand presses are physically rotated by the printer. Each screen is placed on a support, or head, and locked in place. The printer is set carefully printed images on each screen until they are all in the correct alignment of the final image combination. The correct color of the ink is added to each screen and is forced through openings in the screen by pulling a squeegee from the bottom of the screen at the top. A number of different factors affecting the final result of screen printing, including hardness of the squeegee, the angle and the traction force used and the type of ink used. After printing, their shirts were run through a high temperature dryer to cure the ink so that bind to the fibers of the material. A final print test is approved by the graphic artist who works in the design and implementation of the shirts printed.
