DESIGN WORK ~
What makes our work custom is the fact that we provide the design work. If you have an idea, we will work with you to bring it to life. Our Design work is accomplished through a combination of hand made pieces and custom clip art. Already have a design you made? No problem, upload your image and we'll print your custom artwork. Design consulting is also free when you go through the Basement Custom Screen Printing! Whether its a design you made or need help making, we're happy to do it for you.
Embroidery is another method we use to create custom apparel. This process entails stitching the design into the fabric. You can embroider on almost any fabric, but it is easiest when performed on heavier materials such as hats, jackets, and canvas bags. By embroidering heavier materials you get the same custom look with a durable stitched design that will last.
SILK SCREENING ~
Silk screen printing is a process where ink is passed through a crosshatched meshed screen to the exact shape of a design and then dried to a temperature of 325 degrees. This produces an image that is precise and of higher quality compared to iron on transfers. The different types of ink used in this process include plastisol, waterbased, and discharge. Although plastisol is the most commonly used ink, waterbased is a little thinner and gives a smoother finish. Discharge ink is mostly used on fine garments and detailed work. This type of ink is very similar to waterbased, but instead of adhering to the garment, it dies it. All types of ink make for a very durable finish. What can be screen printed you ask? Well pretty much anything you can think of. Some items for example might be....
Koozies Key Chains
Wine bags Water Bottles
Studio chairs Aprons
Specialty garments may consist of materials that are required for workers in the trade such as flame retardant vests and work ware. If there is a certain material that you require to be printed that is flame resistant or requires certain qualifications, we will be happy to provide you with those garments printed for your needs.
