Recycling at the Greek Corner
You may have heard that each of our super soft Allmade tees are made with six recycled water bottles. Our concern for the environment doesn’t stop there. On a typical day at the Greek Corner, we receive thousand of t-shirts ready to be screen printed. Of course, those shirts arrive in dozens and dozens of cardboard boxes. Since we deliver our custom printed t-shirts in our own private label boxes, that’s hundreds of extra cardboard boxes every week. Instead of tossing them in the dumpster, we make a trip every week to the City of Springfield Recycling Center on Franklin street. As good stewards of the environment, we are always looking for ways to make the world a better place.

What is a base print?
Why is it that you request a one color print, but you are quoted a two color price? It’s probably because the color in your design will require a base print. In layman’s terms, a base print is like a primer. If you screen print an ink color on a dark shirt, the ink will “soak” into the fabric of the shirt and look splotchy. The ink will lose it’s brightness and the actual ink color will be discolored. By laying down a base coat of white, it seals the fabric and allows the following ink color to be as brilliant color as intended. The photos below illustrate the difference between a print with and without a base. The image on the left has no base, the image on the right does have a base.

Screen Printing Styles – Vintage or Opaque?
When designing a custom screen printed t-shirt, an important factor in the design is the selecting the type of print that best fits the look and style you are trying to achieve. The following two options will make an huge impact on how your t-shirt will look.
Opaque. For decades, screen printers have use an opaque print for t-shirts. An opaque print means the colors are more vibrant and bold. The whites are very bright. Printing this style requires a white base and creates a thicker layer of ink printed on the shirt. You can see an illustration of opaque printing below.
Vintage. We offer a “new” vintage screen printing style that has become very popular. This effect creates an image that appears to be old and worn. The vintage print is created by making only one pass of the squeegee over the screen. In addition to creating a stylish appearance, it is leaves a thinner coat of ink which is softer to the touch. It is especially attractive on our fashion tees like Allmade, Next Level, and Bella Canvas. After all, who wants a ultra thin, super soft t-shirt with a big patch of plastic ink printed on their chest? At this time, 75 – 80% of all of our customer printed t-shirts feature a vintage print. An example of vintage printing is shown below.
