A Versatile Option
There are many reasons for custom screen printing. Screen printing is versatile because it is appropriate for a variety of personal, organizational, and business needs.
There are a variety of choices when applying graphics and branding to your apparel.
- Screen printing
- Sublimation and heat press
- Digital full-color imprints
Before choosing screen printing, consider the process that would best serve your concept. The design team at T.R. McTaggart can help you with that.
Why Screen Printing?
Screen printing is the most popular method of garment decoration. It’s also very affordable and is a highly economical and efficient method for printing in bulk.
Color and Design
When choosing the color of your shirt, think about it in relation to the colors of your design that will be printed on it. This will affect how stiff the print is, as well as the price.
It’s cheaper to print on light fabrics, such as white or heather grey, because the ink is more visible. If you select a dark fabric, you have to print a white under base so the colors in your design can be seen despite the dark background. This additional layer increases both the price and thickness of the print.
Each color adds to the cost because a new screen is made for each color. So, think about how many colors you actually need. Is there a way to get the same message across (and still make it look cool) with minimal colors? Could you strategically use the fabric’s color as part of the artwork? You want to consider cost versus effect gained.
On the other hand, maybe you have a design that demands a lot of layers to meet your vision. Sometimes this is the case. Just make sure you’ve weighed the alternatives first before you come to that conclusion.
No worries, though, because the design and sales team at T.R. McTaggart are here to assist you every step of the way. We can make your ideas come to life, and at an affordable price!

2. Boost School Spirit
Screen printing is great for apparel worn at school events and can boost school spirit through pride in school colors and showing off a beloved mascot. Whether you’re outfitting the math club or robotics team or want to give the glee club or the band a unified put-together look, screen printing is a fun way to accomplish that goal.
Order shirts with your school’s logo or mascot and students will be proud to wear it – and maybe even hang onto it as memorabilia. Custom screen printing is a great way to build and preserve memories.
3. Outfit Your Organization or Business
Whether you are a nonprofit or fortune-500 company, screen printing is a great option.
Maybe you want to show pride as a member of the PTA or show unity at a fundraiser. Perhaps you want to add to the festivity of your company’s or organization’s picnic. Or, maybe you have a trade show coming up and want shirts for employees to wear and for promo items to give away.
