Graphic Design

There's a lot more to turning out screen-printed products than applying ink and drying it. It all begins with graphic design. And there's a lot more to graphic design than putting words and pictures together. It takes knowledge and skill developed through years of education and experience. That's what you get when you come to Rival Screen Printing for design services.

Here are some of the things our design services can help you do:

Product design

It can make a big difference whether you want your design to work on a T-shirt or a business card. Rival Screen Printing can help you create the best design for these and other products, including flyers, signs, stickers and many others. But fitting the design to the final product requires skill. Size matters, as does placement of graphic elements, if you hope to get the most impact from your screen-printed piece.

Color matching

We use Pantone colors to give you the vivid, eye-popping hues you want on your printed products. That means we have many, many color variations at our disposal. The secret is finding the combinations that provide the perfect results on your product. Our knowledge of Pantone colors lets us help you produce a design that works best with them. You don't have to worry about winding up with a muddy-looking screen-printed image that does no good for your personal or corporate image.

Ink choices

These days, screen printing inks come in so many varieties that it can be difficult to figure out which will work best for any given application. There are plastisol and water-based inks, not to mention specialty inks that glow, shimmer and puff up. You can choose from inks that:

• Look like foil in gold, copper, silver, black or bronze

• Sparkle like shiny metal

• Give a layer of gloss to your image to make it pop

• Have a rubbery feel to make your image more tactile

• Glow in the dark

• Cause images to appear in sunlight and disappear indoors

• Reflect light for effect and for safety

• Turn images 3D 

So the problem isn't a lack of choices. It's finding the right ink for the purpose. If you're supporting the environment, you might want to use water-based inks. If you're promoting an auto show, a rubbery ink could be the right option. Getting ready for a fund-raising event such as a marathon? Consider reflective ink so your runners are safer day and night. 

The important thing to remember is that the professionals at Rival Screen Printing know about all these ink choices and which ones will give you the results you want for your application. They'll help you create a design that makes the best use of the best options.
