Welcome to Our Screen Printing Department.

At GetBold we have the tools and the expertise to make your custom screen-printing job look amazing! We have top of the line equipment and skilled operators who take the time to do the job right.

No two custom jobs are the same. Each one requires special care to choose the right ink, the correct density and the right curing temperatures to ensure the image turns out exactly how you had imagined. Be it bright colours, muted tones, discharge water base, puff, or high density, we have mastered them all. Not all screen printers are the same. So be careful when choosing where you get your custom printing done. There are many things that can go wrong, and we’ve seen some disasters out there. GetBold is a shop with integrity. We care about every order.

You can order your screen printing through our website on-line ordering system. We have a video that shows you how.

“Meet Tomo. He is our amazing shop manager. He personally oversees every job we screen print for quality and excellence!”

Specialty Screen Printing in Vancouver

At GetBold we offer many specialty screen-printing options. We can print your image using glitter inks, shimmer inks or metallic inks. We can print with discharge water-base inks that absorb right into the fabric and can’t be felt with your hands at all. The opposite of that would be puff printing, where the image puffs up above the garment. We have made some really great designs using a combination of puff and foil. Foil comes in lots of great colours or patterns and with the help of our in-line foil applicator, we can add foil to any part of your design and print other colours around it. Foil is incredibly shiny and reflective and is actually glued onto the shirt with a glue that we print just like an ink. People really love it!

Our customer service reps and art department can help you decide if specialty inks are the best options for your custom design. If you would like more information feel free to hit the chat button on this page and ask us some questions, or send us an email or give us a call. We are always happy to help!

Screen Printing on T-shirts

Screen printing on t-shirts is the most common way to get an image on a t-shirt. The reason for this is that it is durable and the process lends itself well to heavy and rugged inks that wash well and hold up to flexing and bending with a garment. Think about it? What other printing application is expected to hold up well after being washed one hundred times. Screen printing can do that.

We can screen print almost anything on a t-shirt. Simple logos or even photographic images can be created using layering of inks and blending of colours right on a t-shirt. But remember, the more colours in your image, the more it costs you to print it. In the case of screen printing, the old saying ‘less is more’ generally applies.

“Eric, our lead screen printer, makes some adjustments to head number six with our ink mixing station in the background.”

Screen Printing on Sweatshirts

We can screen print logos on all kinds of garments. Sweatshirts are a very popular option. When screen printing a sweatshirt, be careful not to expect incredible detail – for example...a photograph of your uncle. That’s not going to screen print well on a sweatshirt. Screen printing on a sweatshirt is best with blocks of colours , not colour bleeds or half tone dots. I’m not saying it’s impossible to print a photo of your uncle on a sweatshirt, but it’s a complicated process that is quite involved and typically looks better on t-shirts than sweatshirts. The reason for this is the thickness of the fabric. The thicker the fabric the more likely those tiny dots of detail squish out under the pressure of the squeegee against the thick soft sweatshirt and detail gets lost.

If you plan your art to be simple, and only a few colours, you will probably be the most happy with the results on a hoodie or a crew-neck sweatshirt. You can do some pretty great art with one or two colours. AND - the fewer colours, the less you will pay.

“Plastisol inks come in hunderds of colours as well as specialty inks such as glitter or metalic.”

FAQs about screen printing at GetBold

Here are some commonly asked questions about our t-shirt printing services in North Vancouver:

  • Can I bring in my own shirts?

Unfortunately no. There are too many variables when it comes to the fabrics that we print on. We can’t be sure how your t-shirts are going to hold the ink, and they might even melt while we cure the ink. We prefer to stick with the styles we know and trust and can stand behind the results.

  • What are your minimums?

For screen printing, our minimums are 12 pieces per design. You can combine a few different items that are getting the same design to reach 12, such as 5 t-shirts and 7 hoodies.

  • What type of file should I submit?

Vector art is best because it can be scaled without losing detail. So a file like Adobe Illustrator (.ai) or Corell draw. Or an EPS or PDF saved as a vector. We can work with pixel images too. JPG or PSD can work, but make sure the art is created at a high resolution (300 DPI is recommended). You should be able to zoom in to the image to 300% and still have pretty sharp lines.

  • Do you do printed samples?

No. Unfortunately, the bulk of the time to make a screen print is in the pre-press. It takes just about as long to make a sample as it does to print the whole run, which makes sampling not cost-effective. We do send you highly detailed digital proofs and if you want to come by our showroom, you can see lots of samples of our printing and try on some styles.

So what kind of Screen Printing do we offer?

At Getbold we are experts at custom screen printing. We have knowledgeable staff and excellent equipment that delivers the best results every time.

At GetBold we offer many types of screen printing on t-shirts, sweatshirts, and a wide variety of other garments.

What is Screen Printing?

Screen printing is the process of forcing ink through a stencil. It is quite possibly the oldest form of printing around, except now we have the added benefit of computer-generated art and incredibly detailed stencils. First, we separate your art into separate colours. Then, we make a separate screen for each colour in your design. We load each one of those onto a printing press, and we fill the screen with ink and then push the ink through the stencil with a squeegee. We can make really detailed prints by stacking up different colours of ink and blending them together on the t-shirt.

Once the shirt is printed, it goes on a conveyor dryer and goes on a trip through an oven. When the shirt gets to 320 degrees Fahrenheit, the ink is cured and is permanent.

Many different types of inks can be used in screen printing. This is what makes it better than digital printing. glitters, foils, and many other kinds of inks can be loaded into the screen and pushed through the stencil with the squeegee. So many options…so few shirts!

We needed help fast when another printing company in Vancouver (Coastal Reign) dropped the ball on our project and wasted our time. Andrew helped us with a great design and layout within a few hours. Our international project was finishing up early and time was of the essence to get 100 caps printed. The hats were printed a few days early, and everyone on our project loved them!!Sincere thanks guys for bailing us out!

This is by far the most extensive tshirt printing company available in the lower mainland and definitely North Vancouver. Their staff members are pleasant to deal with, competent and readily available. Their willingness to provide me with swift image file modifications, suggestions, and concise estimates without any hesitance made the tshirt printing company process easy and less of a headache I expected. Their website is well optimized, with extensive content that thoroughly lists their products available, and gives you options to customize and generate your own estimates which I found very convenient. I appreciate all the work they've done and give them a bonus star for getting my project done a week ahead of schedule. In terms of quality these guys deliver.Big thanks to Andrew for taking lead on my project and his patience with me. Pricing was very reasonable and transparent.

Get BOLD has been above and beyond helpful and we have tip-toed into the Merch world. I had no experience with designing clothes, colours or options and Rob has been great with expert advice throughout the process.

We really appreciate the work of GetBold put in on our jerseys. The players love them and we always get compliments on how they look. I am very satisfied with my purchase. But I have to say the choices of jerseys are so limited. I think I would prefer Fcustom, they are professional jersey manufacturers.

Awesome service and excellent products. My first time ordering a company t-shirt and Rob walked me through the entire process, helped with suggestions on materials for my fitness company as well as logo placement, item color, modifications, etc. These guys are professionals and they know what they are doing. They walk you through each step. I called 4 other companies prior to calling GetBold and those other companies did not help me at all... just wanted my money. Glad I went with GetBold. Customer service matters and it backed by quality products

Edit2: Recently placed another order and can't say enough good things. I was in a rush to get shirts printed and they arrived at my door barely 1 week after I placed the order. We went through a couple of mockups as well in the process and everything went extremely smoothly.Edit1: I placed another order through GetBold in March for a beanie as well as a patch. The beanie came out great with lots of detail and strong embriodery and the patch is also virtually perfect and is perfect for the bundle that we are including them in. I'm never in doubt when ordering from these guys, everything has been great so far.An excellent place to get t-shirts, hoodies, and toques! The online quote calculator and the ease in which you can communicate with someone to ask questions make this a great manufacturing plant to deal with for your merch! The free shipping within Canada is another excellent bonus. A+

GetBold did a really fabulous job AND they were quick and affordable. They were able to turn around a batch of shirts in less than three days. There was a slight error on the first batch of shirts we printed with them (no fault of theirs), but they handled the concern with professionalism and expedition. Kaiya and Andrew both helped us tremendously and were able to get us exactly what we needed in a very quick timeframe. To begin with, they provide you with a thorough mock up and are diligent with the details. From start to finish, they handle your needs with care.We chose GetBold after an incredibly negative experience with another t-shirt printing company. Suffice it to say, we will only use GetBold moving forward. Highly recommended. Make sure you use them for your print or embroidery needs. You won't regret it.
