WE OFFER A WIDE VARIETY OF ITEMS THAT ARE SILK-SCREEN FRIENDLY

Your custom promotional silk-screen t-shirt project is important to us, and we offer a variety of items to showcase your corporate or brand logo on. From T-shirts, sweatshirts, and jackets to tote bags, blankets, and more, we offer all types of specialty inks including High Density, Glitter, Gel, Metallic, and Flocking. We also offer direct-to-garment printing (good for logos with lots of colors and low minimums) and Heat Transfers (including Rhinestones, Rhinestuds, and Nailhead transfers). Select from over a dozen garment and apparel manufactures, and hundreds of tote bags and blanket companies. If you don't see what you’re looking for, feel free to call and ask us about the item.

We can give you a virtual preview of what your items will look like if you upload your artwork to us. No job is too big or small, so feel free to call and discuss your project needs at 619-228-5966.

WE OFFER BOTH TRADITIONAL SILK-SCREENING AND DIGITAL PRINTING

Sway Collective offers several different methods of printing for your custom promotional t-shirts, sweatshirts, tote bags, and blankets.

First, we have traditional silk-screening or screen printing for large runs, offered from 1 to 18 colors for your logo or artwork. The benefit of this process is being able to use Plastisol or water-based inks, with options for glow in the dark, glitter, shimmer, metallic, gloss, nylobond, and expanding (puff) options. After the screening process is complete, the garments are run through a heat tunnel, that sets the ink permanently into the garment.

Second, we also offer digital garment printing in which we use a special inkjet printer that cures the water-based ink with a giant heat press. One of the benefits of this process is the expanded color palette offered, in which much higher levels of detail are possible with your art or logo. This process is perfect for prototyping and short production runs of extremely high-quality multi-colored output. Both processes do offer extraordinary results, with brilliant color reproduction, that will last the lifetime of the garment.

ADD EFFECTS TO YOUR SILK-SCREENING WITH A MIXTURE OF TEXTURES

Besides a wide spectrum of available colors, you can also jazz up your art with special-effect inks. Special effect inks, when used correctly, will make your artwork pop off the canvas, and bring even more attention to your corporate logo or brand artwork. They also add the ability to use elements in your artwork such as metallic to simulate metal, and leather to simulate natural materials. Puffy inks will give your artwork a 3-dimensional look, and clear gels will offer a very smooth texture. Take a look at the samples to gain insight into how these elements can boost your artwork and promotion.

If you see something you like, but are not sure how to implement it, and then feel free to give us a call at Sway Collective and we will be glad to be of assistance.

Select from Clear Gels inks to simulate depth, Metallic, and Metallic Shimmer Inks to represent metal, Puffy Inks to give a 3D effect, Overlays and glow in the dark overlay inks for day and night views, and various different combinations of Special Effect Inks put together, to create some really remarkable custom promotional t-shirt silk-screening projects.

WE CAN HANDLE SPECIAL SILK-SCREENING PRINTING REQUIREMENTS

Graphic designers are getting much more creative nowadays, and are coming up with bold new looks and designs that are fun and exciting. Instead of just screen printing your logo or graphic design in the center of the shirt, or across the top of the pocket, we can take your design and pretty much print it anywhere you like.

Whether it's the sleeves, pockets, front side, or back side, we can print your graphic design in any location needed.
