Silk Screen Custom Waterslide Decals (We don't run)
Silk screen waterslide decals is a printing technique where a mesh is used to transfer ink onto a substrate, except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil. A blade or squeegee is moved across the screen to fill the open mesh apertures with ink, and a reverse stroke then causes the screen to touch the substrate momentarily along a line of contact. This causes the ink to wet the substrate and be pulled out of the mesh apertures as the screen springs back after the blade has passed. One color is printed at a time, so several screens can be used to produce a multicolored image or design.

Ink Jet Custom Waterslide Decals (We don't run)
Ink jet waterslide decals is a type of computer printing that recreates a digital image by propelling droplets of water based ink onto substrates. Ink-jet printers are the most commonly used type of printer that you can run yourself by purchasing blank waterslide decal paper.
