S i l k s c r e e n D e c a l s : How to order
You can order your custom silkscreen decals here, in our online shop.
Read on for advice on how to get the best quality print.
To print silkscreen decals, your images will need to be vector images with no halftones i.e. solid colors only. Adobe Illustrator CS4 (extension .ai), or Corel draw X4 (extension .cdr), Acrobat (extension .pdf), Photoshop (extension .eps) are the preferred file formats. If you do not have this type of format, we can create a vector art for you.
For critical color matching, we strongly advise to provide us with a printed proof or a pantone solid coated color number.
You can order your custom decals in our online shop. To send your file for printing, you can email us at email@example.com. If your file is larger than 20MB, you may need to use a free file sending service like Dropbox or Google Drive.
The cost for the silkscreen process will depend on the number of sheets, number of colors and color palette used. We have leaded and unleaded colors for glass, ceramic and porcelain with metallic colors available. We also offer custom cone 6 decals in blue and black.
Each layout and each color requires the creation of a unique screen, therefore there is a onetime set up fee per layout. If one were to reprint this same layout even in a different color, there would be no set up fee.
