Put your ideas out onto t-shirts, posters, tote bags, stationery and more in no time.
Possible Worlds offers screen exposure services for those eager to get started on a silkscreening project they’ve been thinking about, yet may not have the equipment, knowledge or time to create a screen.
You send us your artwork, and we’ll create the screen for you, ready to go.
HOW TO GET YOUR SCREEN WITH ARTWORK
1. Prepare your artwork
Artwork must be in black and white, with high contrast (no shades of grey), no less than 300 dpi (72 dpi is not appropriate). Bold shapes and thick lines are preferred (no halftones or very thin lines or we may not be able to take your order on). Artwork must be in JPG or PDF format and not in any other format ( e.g . NOT in Word, PowerPoint, etc.)
2. Send us your artwork then complete payment
E-mail your artwork to firstname.lastname@example.org with “Screen Exposure” in the subject line. We’ll let you know if the artwork is suitable for exposure. If not, we may ask you to make some edits. If you require us to make edits, a flat rate of $50 per hour graphic design fee is applicable.
Once artwork is approved, send us payment within 48 hours so we can prepare your screen. Payment must be received before we proceed.
3. Pick up your screen
Once artwork is approved and payment is received, the screen will be ready for pickup within 3-5 business days at Possible Worlds.
Artwork: Size is limited to 8”x 10”, ideal for printing on t-shirts and smaller posters. We prefer artwork with bold shapes and thick lines (no halftones or very thin lines or we may not be able to take your order on).
Screen: Size is 14” x 16”, created in-house, with a mesh count of 110 to 160 and a wood frame. These screens must be purchased; we do not offer reclaiming services or use other company’s screens.
