What is silk screen printing?
Silk screen printing is one of the oldest printing techniques in the world that uses a stencil and not much has changed over time. It originally got it name from the silk that was used to make the mesh for the stencils, but is now made from more modern materials. The printing process is still the same but technology has definitely helped improve efficiencies and environmental sustainability. The process starts with mixing a waterbased ink specially for your print job, then making a stencil that blocks out all the parts that aren't your design. The open parts of this stencil form your design and the ink is then pushed through the stencil and onto your garment below. Using this method we can get a crisp print result and print fine detail that we can replicate over and over again.

Benefits of using water based inks
We are one of the only printing companies that use waterbased inks in Australia. We use an ink called Magna which is forward thinking and has not only is environmentally sustainable but has an excellent soft touch. Waterbased inks also offer a far superior detail than traditional inks because they are much thinner. Because the ink is thinner this also means we can print on a wider range of fabrics too.
AS Colour basics
We stock a huge range of t shirt brands, but 90% of our work is done on AS Colour garments. This is because we offer a really sharp wholesale price on the blank garments to our Melbourne clients. The AS Colour range is great value for money because they are a retail quality shirt. You can relabel them and onsell them for a much higher price than most other blank t shirts in Australia.
