Every t-shirt from The Uniun is silk screen printed to order right here in our workshop. We take pride in our work and no part of the silk screening process is ever outsourced. From start to finish, each apparel item is screen printed by the skilled hands of an experienced silk screen artist. There are many steps involved in the silk screen printing process; creative design, screen set up, photo-emulsion, design application and heat setting, to name a few. Each of which must be carefully executed in a controlled environment as certain conditions must be met in order for the chemicals to react in just the way right way to produce the desired results. Silk screen printing is as much of a science as it is an art. This means that if any of the variables involved in the steps of the process are less than optimal, the quality of the finished design is compromised. In fact, it takes a solid amount of patient diligence just to get to the fun part, which in our opinion is applying the ink to the apparel canvas and watching our creativity come to life! Check out this video, a short demo of the design application step in the process, to see it for yourself.
