color separations are completed the films are produced. Each
color of ink has it's own piece of film. The films are then
"burned" onto a silkscreen frame. Each color of
ink has it's own screen. The
color separations, film, and screen burning processes are
what determine the set-up costs.

quantities or few colors or an automatic press for high quantities
and large numbers of colors. The screens are registered to
line up properly so the graphic prints correctly. A trial
run is printed for design accuracy and then the products which
you have selected from one of our catalogs (we can mail you
one) or off this website are printed, dryed, folded and boxed
