Haven Press provides Flatstock Screenprinting services on paper and other flat materials.
Screenprinting services start at $189.00 for 18x24 images in black ink, and scale up with image size and artwork color requirements.
How do you work with art?
We work with photo-emulsion to translate images onto our silkscreens with an exposure unit.
We can source from digital separations provided by illustrators or artists; we can also shoot screens from hand painted films.
If you prefer to make a hand-painted mockup, we can separate files for you if you require this service.
What we generally don't do is 'reproductive printmaking', which involves translating oil paintings or other existing artwork like watercolor paintings to screenprinting using color separations. If you've already made the painting, but didn't make it with screenprinting in mind, chances are you will be better off having it digitally printed.
While we also have no minimum amounts, we do have minimum fees which are based around the setup of a print job.
What kind of presses do you have?
We have two presses- a hand-squeegee printing table for small editions or hand-processes like watercolor monoprints, and a Svecia SSM flatbed semi-automatic screeprinting press for longer runs or larger images.
Both are for Flatstock (paper and board) printing.
We can print on wood, mat board, and other rigid substrates. We've done some boxes, record sleeves, and other objects that were a bit more experimental.
How can I get a quote?
That's easy, forward us the relevant information in an email:
Image size; digital artwork files (.PSD or .AI or .PDF) or photos of the maquette you've made; the amount of pieces you would like us to make; paper type, if applicable yet; and the amount of colors your project is designed to require. Anything else relevant you choose to include like a budget requirement or information about a timeline/turnaround time are also quite helpful.
Our minimum charge screenprint quotation does not include paper, and it is based on the image size, and includes a pre-press trim/square up of your stock as well as film, screen, and a basic black ink; adding anything more will increase the cost.
There are Three fields/sizes we offer, in inches. Please accept that we do not include paper in these prices; we have house paper we can provide if you request it, and we are happy to walk you through paper stocks available from our suppliers- but due to the generally custom nature of our client needs we anticipate you will specify a paper we will have to quote and acquire.
Reflecting this, our price structuring this is for the printing services only and paper is added at the time you designate a stock. Please allow for overages in the amount of 10% first color, +5% overs in additional colors when estimating your own paper stock; also allow for some extra margin around the image for handling while printing.
If you require other services like complex paper prep (large sheet division etc pre-press), ink mixture (custom color matches), special inks (metallic? Fluorescent?), or services like paper deckling (ripping the sheet down for a natural look), we can add these to the total but require your information to fashion you an accurate quote. When you get in touch, please- specify as much information as you can.
