Live Screen Printing

Live screen printing is just what it sounds like! We bring the t-shirt printing process to any event, party, or brand activation, and give guests the opportunity to create their own t-shirt on the spot.

We are experts in the old school craft of print making, whether it be on apparel or other items like tote bags, posters, etc… it all happens with a physical screen and ink.

Each item is printed by hand using custom build gear that allows the guest to directly interact with the process.   We are able to print multiple, different designs on one Screen Print Station, so each guest can mix and match – creating something truly one-of-a-kind.  We created the process that allows us to print complex multiple color images, even on dark colored apparel like black t-shirts

The original ‘crafted by hand’ Live Screen Printing experience – Spin Ink Screen Printing can activate with a single Live Screen Printing press equipped to handle 4 single color images, or we can modify our system to handle complex multi-color images.  Additional mobile t-shirt print stations can be added to increase total production into thousands of items at a single event.

Pushing the boundaries since day one, ink cotton is the only truly national Live Screen Printing company.  We’ve expanded from offering the Live Screen Printing service in Toronto, ON. To any major city in Ontario, Canada. with the same custom built mobile screen printing press and the same professional, educated, and awesome staff.  Spin Ink Screen Printing is the first company to tackle high detail and complex multi color images printed live at an event.  After hearing the word “impossible” by others, our clients know they can trust their brands and high detail creative to us.

Virtually any item can be printed on and customized on-site we are limited only by our imaginations. Past live screen printing activations have included live printing on hoodies, sweatshirts, bandanas, LP record sleeves, cd jackets, denim, patches, and stickers.

How Does It Work?

We bring our mobile print shop to you! We have the ability to print thousands of shirts during your event, and also make it our job to show your guests a fabulous time!

Our team of screen printers crank out shirts to the specifications of your customers, and turn your party goers into designers. Watch their amazement as their designs come to life!

Not sure where to start? No worries! When we plan your event, we can determine exactly how the experience should be set up.

Is It Expensive?

We have various packages to cater to your needs. You can purchase the shirts or garments, or you can have your guests purchase them directly from us.

There are many price points for this: from more expensive fashion forward shirts, to a less expensive standard tote bag. Next, we charge for our setup and time. This price depends on how long your event is, how many printers we need, and how many presses we will be using. Contact us for a quote that caters to your unique event! No two parties are the same.




Other Questions To Consider

How many designs and shirt options would you like available? We typically bring two 4-color presses. This can be eight different single color designs, or four different 2-color designs, etc.

How much time do you need us and what capacity of printing do you need? Depending on our set up, we can average 50 shirts/hour to 300 shirts/hour.

Do you want the shirts pre printed? This can be great for corporate events where we can add a “Sponsored by” type logo on the sleeve or upper back of the shirts prior to the event.
