ScreenPrinted here in Canada

By Maxime Wehinger

 

The process of screen printing has been known for centuries in the Far East, and was used by the U.S. Army during World War II to mark their military vehicles, as well as by AndyWharhol to create some of his works.It is an adaptive process, both simple and complex that has managed to stand the test of time.

Why Screen Printing?

When we started Capsize, we asked ourselves a lot of things, one of which was what was the best way to print our designs on our various products.In the end, out of all the options, we decided on screen printing.Mainly because it's very organic, thecolors can be intense and contrasting, as well as being more durable than other printing methods available.

It's Done Here In Canada

We really wanted to work with a local company, to deal with our issues directly with our partner and to create a relationship of trust that would last over time.  In addition to having access to local expertise, thanks to this relationship of proximity, we've managed to be involved in the various creative processes.

Test Print

For the release of each collection, we do a lot of test prints with Charlie from Stickies. We test the designs, the colors of the inks on the different t-shirts, hoodies and crewnecks. It's a really cool step, where we get to play with ideas and designs and get to turn something digital into something concrete and physical.
