REB – Reusable Eco-Friendly Bags Print methods and costs Silkscreen Printing Silkscreen or Screen printing is a printing technique that uses a woven mesh to support an ink-blocking stencil. The attached stencil forms open areas of mesh that transfer ink or other printable materials which can be pressed through the mesh as a sharp-edged image onto a substrate. A roller or squeegee is moved across the screen stencil, forcing or pumping ink past the threads of the woven mesh in the open areas. Screen printing is also a stencil method of print making in which a design is imposed on a screen of silk or other fine mesh, with blank areas coated with an impermeable substance, and ink is forced through the mesh onto the printing surface. It is also known as silkscreen, serigraphy, and serigraph.

REB – Reusable Eco-Friendly Bags Print methods and costs File Transfer (Heat-Transfer) Heat transfer printing is a method of transferring a desired pattern via heat onto a substrate. There are two ways to transfer the pattern--with a press or with an inkjet or electrostatic printer. Suitable substrates include paper, plastic, cloth and many others. Heat transfer printing involves the use of an inkjet or electrostatic printer. The image to be transferred is created via computer, which is attached to an inkjet or electrostatic printer. The printer's print head transfers the image by applying heat and pressure onto the ink ribbon and substrate. Heat transfer printing is used for multiple applications. Manufacturers use this method to create banners, signs and displays. It can also be used for ceramics, ski and snowboard designs, T-shirt and other apparel designs, among other applications. People can use heat transfer printing to apply images to countertops, flooring, mouse pads, bags and large format textiles. Plate Charge: $120.00 Print cost per square meter: $3.00 MOQ (Minimum Order Quantity): 500 Pieces or according to the bag model

How to calculate the print costs 1.500 bags one side print with 5 colors Using file transfer (hot-transfer) the print cost is not calculated by color but by print area. Print area with 5” * 3” on one side of each bag: 5” * 3” = 12.7cm * 7.62cm = 96.774cm2 96.774cm2 * 1.500 = 145,161.00cm2 = 14.5161m2 14.5161m2 * $3.00 = $43.55 $120.00 (plate cost) + $43.55 = $163.55 = Total print cost for any print color number $163.55 / 1.500 = $0.109 (per bag)
