Good question. Our products are screen printed, meaning ink is pushed through a screen in the right places to put the ink on the KOOZIE® Can Koolers. Screen printing is a tedious process. Multiple coats of photo emulsion are put on both sides of a screen, then it is stored to air dry in a dark environment. Then a black transparency (positive) is printed. This positive is placed on the screen. The screen is then burned in an exposure unit in a dark room. The image area does not get cured in this process. Then the screen is sprayed with water to remove the emulsion in the non-exposed portion. The screen has to dry again. Then it is taped and ink is put on it. After the ink is put on the KOOZIE ® Can Koolers , the screen is cleaned. This is a chemical process using a power washer. This is for each job. The screen charge on all new orders is 40.00 EXACT repeat orders is $20.00, and changing ink color on back side is $20.00.
We use the same process for T-shirts.
