Who? What? Why? My name is Nick Baker, my shop is in Seattle's Maple Leaf neighborhood (not Canada). I have been printing shirts for 15 years. I can offer you personal, individualized customer service to make sure that your print job is done to your total satisfaction. I have a six color professional silkscreen press complete with everything that you would find at any large print shop. Prices are low because I have kept my operation relatively small and have low overhead costs. In addition, I can offer more personal and hopefully better service than a larger company might offer. I can do both small and large orders and will work with you and your design to make you a great shirt. If another shop has told you that your job isn't worth their time CALL ME!

Artwork

The best way to get your artwork to us is as an attachment via email. Most digital file formats will work (pdf, jpg, tif, eps, psd) Files should be at least 300 dpi (no compressed web .jpg or .gif files) at 100% size that you want printed. We can also work with a clean hard copy of the artwork. Color or black and white logos, text, and line art work well. For shirts where there is mainly text you can send a Word document or similar, there is no need to try to convert your file to an image. Color photographs generally do not make good screen prints.

Printing on dark shirts may require a base print to make the design stand out on the shirt. Graphics assistance available. ($25/hr) pro-rated.

Free Fonts

Here are some free font sites for making text for your design.
If you find a font that you like, attach the P.C. version of it along with the text for your shirt to your email.

Ink Colors

We have a wide variety of colors in stock, Union Ink has a Color Chart that you can reference.
We can use PMS or Pantone reference numbers to custom color match your logo or suit your specific design.

Specialty inks are also available: shimmer, puff, glow-in-the-dark, sun change, etc. (special order may be required)

Fast Service

Turn around time is usually 1 week from the time your order is finalized. This includes quantity and styles of shirt, final artwork approval, and payment approval. Shipping time is additional and will vary depending on your location.

High Quality

We use all Newman Roller Frame Screens. These re-tensionable frames allow for higher screen tensions than wood and glue screens, and they do not warp. This allows for more accurate stencils and registration on the shirt. A better screen means a better print. Different screen meshes from 80 to over 300 threads per inch allow for printing different ink types and levels of detail in the artwork. We have a Hopkins 6 color press. This is a professional model manual T-shirt printing machine with micro-adjustable registration, accurate enough to do even CMYK process printing. We use all plastisol inks which are heat cured on the garment for a permanent print without fading or washing out.

Payment

Payment for orders is 50% up front. The balance is due on delivery.
We accept checks (personal o.k.) payable to Maple Leaf Screen Printing or you can pay via Pay Pal
Official PayPal Seal with your credit card or transfer from your bank account.
