Why are your printed samples so superior to other Denver screen print shops?
That's easy. We use technologies for color separating the art files that was developed prior to the personal computer. While we us computers to do the work now, they are a tool we employ and not the catch all answer. Other printers rely on computers and computer scripts to color separate, We do ours manually, treating each design with a unique perspective of it's own individual challenges.. It's an art form in itself. And we do it for less money then some t-shirt shops charge to run their scripts or do type and clip-art. We also find it quicker and cheaper to just create a original design then scan databases of generic clip art.
