​PIGMENTED DISCHARGE PRINTS

This type of printing is also great way to get super single color and multi color prints on dark shirts.  Colors of your choice are mixed into discharge inks, when printed the shirt dyes are evaporated and bright colors are left in its place having little to no feel once washed.  This type of printing requires 100% cotton garments, and also looks especially good with distressed or vintage style designs. Due to its somewhat unpredictable nature, we are not able to offer exact Pantone color matches but extremely close color matching.

SIMULATED PROCESS PRINTS (DARK GARMENTS)

Simulated process printing is the type of printing we use to reproduce full color images on colored/dark shirts.  We use 6 to 8 opaque colors including a white base print to create these full color prints.  This process also uses halftone dots that blend the colors similarly to our 4-color process print option for light shirts.  Due to the additional prep involved with this type of printing, we require a 72 shirt minimum for simulated process print orders.

METALLIC INK PRINTING


Want to add some shimmer and shine to your print? We offer both metallic silver and metallic gold plastisol inks to give your design some extra pop. Custom colors can be achieved but contact us for any others metallic shades you may want

TAGLESS PRINTING / SIZE LABELS

Custom tag-less label prints are a great way to brand your shirts and give them a professional, retail friendly look. With this service we remove the manufacturers sewn in tag, and add in a 1-color screen printed label. This service carries a minimum order of 48 pieces.

FOUR COLOR PROCESS (LIGHT GARMENTS)

Four color process prints are the perfect way to capture full color image on white or natural shirts.  By using translucent Cyan, Magenta, Yellow, and Black inks, we are able to reproduce full color images by blending different percentages of halftone dots together to get a full range of colors.  This type of printing carries a 72 shirt minimum.  

FOIL

Foil printing is the way to give your t-shirt designs that added sparkle that make them stand out. It works great as a design accent as well as a bold iconic statement.
We have a number of foil colors available, either in-stock or through special order. Just let us know more about what you are looking for and we’ll help find the correct foil solution for the job.

WATERBASED PRINTING

Printing with waterbased inks offers an extremely soft feel on light colored shirts.  Rather than sitting on top of the shirt fabric like traditional plastisol inks, waterbased inks penetrate the fibers of the shirt, making the print one with the garment.   Since further steps are required for this type of printing, it does come at a slightly higher price.

PLASTISOL INKS

Our standard screen printing is done using traditional Eco Friendly plastisol inks. We are capable of printing up to 10 colors on light garments, and up to 9 colors on dark garments that require an underbase print.  At American Icon, our standard prints are printed exclusively using pthalate free plastisol inks.  These inks are manufactured to be the safest plastisol inks on the market. Our superior standard prints have a "soft -hand" feel and are often mistaken for water-based ink prints on light garments.Type your paragraph here.

DISCHARGE PRINTING

In today's apparel market, discharge printing has become a very popular style of printing.  Unlike regular inks, discharge inks penetrate the fabric and evaporate the dye from the shirt, leaving your design in its place.  Printing with discharge inks offers an extremely soft hand on dark shirts, ultimately having no feel at all once washed. For this one color print technique, we offer both standard discharge (off-white/cream in color) as well as white discharge ink. This type of printing requires 100% cotton garments, and looks especially good with distressed or vintage style art.
