Silk screen printing is the easiest way to apply your logo or designs to a number of tangible and wearable items. From cozy custom made hoodies and sweatpants to ever-so-needed coffee mugs to custom made tanks, the silk screening process can transfer ink to practically whatever you want. Screen printing makes the ability to design a shirt easier than ever before!

But how exactly does screen printing work? First and foremost, the process starts with an idea. If you already have a design created, you can simply upload the file to to be fitted and printed to garments such as personalized hats or custom sweatshirts. However, if you’re not exactly the creative type, you can leave the artistic work to one of YouInkIt’s expert designers in order to bring your vision to life.


YouInkIt’s design team is able to work with any artwork file types in the format of JPG, .GIF, .BMP, .TIFF, .PDF,.AI, .EPS, .DOC, .XLS, .PPT, and .PSD.

Next, the design team will review your design with you to make sure that it is as perfect as you envisioned it. Once you have finalized your choice of design, YouInkIt will provide you with a digital mock-up proof so that you can see how great your product will look once completed. Highly trained professionals will then apply the approved color inks to state-of-the art screens and affix your custom design to the  garments you’ve chosen. Each article of custom apparel is then printed in correct color order. All of your screen-printed clothing items are then blast dried to ensure sharp quality and to prevent color bleeding. After your design is printed on your items, the finished products are then heat cured to ensure that the artwork will not fade, crack, peel or wash off. Each item in your order is then thoroughly reviewed by quality assurance specialists to make sure that it meets YouInkIt’s uncompromising standards.

A shipping confirmation message with a tracking number and a guaranteed delivery date will then be sent to your provided email. You will be astounded at just how quickly your ridiculously cheap custom t shirts will arrive on your doorstep!
