High Volume Capacity
As one of the largest textile screen printers in Western Canada, we have the equipment and plant capacity to handle high volume orders quickly. We are more than capable of printing over 7,500 T-shirts per day.
Our printing equipment includes 3 automatic textile screen printing presses, 12-colour, 10-colour and 8-colour; and manual printing presses for short runs and specialty work. We produce up to 10-colour index prints which is the preferred method of printing when the original image is complex and colour consistency is paramount.
Automatic Printing Presses
Using our automatic presses, we have the capability to print high volume within a very short turnaround time. Some of our experience in managing large volume jobs comes from many years of printing T-shirts for Vancouver’s annual Sun Run and The Aids Walk, and playoff towels for the Vancouver Canucks hockey team. Whether your job is annual, seasonal, year round, or a one-time special event, we have the in-house capabilities to meet your needs.
Direct to Garment Digital
We have two Mimaki GP-604D digital textile printers that print direct to white and light coloured garments.They have a maximum print area of 16" x 24". With a resolution of 720dpi we are able to print the finest detail from photographs to fine line work. They print CMYK water based inks that have a very smooth, soft-hand finish. We can take your digital file and go directly to the garment with no need for films or screens so one-offs or small quantities are welcome. These versitile machines also have the ability to print discharge on some dyed garments. Please refer to our artwork guidelines on how to set up your digital files.
Index Colour Printing
When a job demands faithful reproduction of a complex colour illustration, a method of printing called ‘index colour’ delivers a finished print that is truer to the original than is possible using 4-colour process screen printing methods. Over the years we have used our 10-colour and 8-colour automatic printing presses to successfully meet some very exacting reproduction requirements utilizing index colour separations.
Large Format Printing
Our large automatic presses can accommodate an image area up to 21” x 26”. Large format press set-up is suitable for printing tea towels, T-shirts, panels and other items with a large image area. Whether printing a single large image, or ganging multiple images on a single panel, our large format printing capability offers flexibility, creativity and cost savings.
