Lou's Shirt Shack's advanced screen printing techniques have been developed over decades of research, testing, and passion . Our most basic spot color screen prints are crisp and our Pantone color matches are excellent. We have developed our own specialized underbase techniques that create vivid, sharp, tightly registered imprints on colored garments. Our advanced knowledge of art separation & screen making technology provides consistently dazzling imprints. Lou's Shirt Shack is backed by the knowledge & expertise of well known industry veterans, who started with hand-made machines in 1987. This group of gurus has spent what is to many, several lifetimes focused on process development & control. The result is winning dozens of screen printing awards from SGIA & Impressions Magazine over the last decade. From Basic Logos, to Soft Waterbase Retail looks to Special Effect inks to Full Color (4-color process or simulated process) imprints, Lou's Shirt Shack has you covered for garment screen printing.
Note: Screen Printing will be used for orders of 24 garments or more in most cases.
