by Sleepy Dan on February 1, 2013

Two weeks ago a new Crew Sweatie was released with help from Regular Printing, so I wanted to share a behind the scenes look at their shop process.

Heather blue crew is a perfect color for a tonal printing, so we mixed up a water based ink color to match the shirt, then got ready for the Regular Printing magic!

The studio is one of the cleanest I’ve seen and perfect for a master at work.

Scott and Shamsy are using a manual press so everything is hands on here!

Perfect placement and alignment is key when the sweatie is put on the pallet.

The water based ink is so soft compared to a plastisol print, that is why I use water based inks all the time… Especially for this super soft crew sweatshirt!

Each sweatie runs thru the dryer to cure the ink, then collected and folded up.

The limited run of 24 are complete, so extra ink is collected to clean the screens.

Then each sweatie gets a custom neck label sewn in by hand.

The little details like a embroidered sleeve applique make it perfect…
