Elusive Press Cornwall Screen Print Studio – We are a quility garment printers based in West Cornwall.
We grew our business in South Bristol for over 10 years. Now located in Penzance, West Cornwall. We are quility t-shirt printers, Specializing in high end screen printing on t-shirts, hoodies, polos, vests and crew neck sweatshirts.
This batch of custom tshirts was truley a bespoke piece of art. The chest pocket was hand screen printed onto fabric, cut out and stitched onto the t-shirt to create the pocket. The inside label prints were added and the woven labels were removed, thus re-branding the tshirt. All produced in our Bristol screen print studio by our professional screen printers and seamstress’s.

What is vinyl heat transfer printing? The design is reversed and cut onto sheets of vinyl transfer paper using a plotter (cutter). Following this, the design is flipped and placed onto the garment in the location where the print is desired. The vinyl design is then heat pressed onto the garment. Once cooled, the vinyl backing paper is pealed away leaving the design printed on the garment.
What is vinyl transfer printing good for? Unlike screen printing, this printing method does not require any set up cost. This makes it the perfect solution for one-off garments or to personalise an already screen printed garment. For example, a stag or hen-do for 20 people would require the same design screen printed onto the front of the garment and individual names heat pressed onto the back.

What is screen printing? Screen printing is a super high quality and durable method to print garments. It’s a labour intensive process with each colour of the print requiring a separate screen printing screen/plate. Each additional colour is hand printed then spot dried between colours. The garment is rotated on a specialist screen printing carousel for the application of each additional colour. The garments are then heat cured on a tunnel dryer to provide maximum print durability and colour longevity.
What is screen printing good for? Screen printing is a great way to produce anything from 10- 1000+ printed garments. It is the best possible way to re-produce a design onto a garment.
Single Colour Screen Print
Single colour prints are the most popular choice for short volume fashion and promotional t-shirts for our customers. This is due to a quicker set up process in making the printing screens. This reduces the final print cost to you, the customer.
2 Colour Screen Print
Requiring a set up of 2 x screens, one for each print colour in the print. We offer great deals on 2colour prints on our price page which include free screen set up.
3 Colour Screen Print
Requiring a set up of 3 x screens, one for each print colour in the print.
4 Colour Screen Print
Requiring a set up of 4 x screens, one for each print colour in the print.
Split Fountain Screen Prints
Split fountain screen printing, is a technique for screen printing two or several colors in one pass. It is a great way to have more colorful prints without the added expense of extra screen set up.
As you can see in the example below which is a 2 colour screen set up. The first layer had 3 colours of ink pulled in one pass, the second layer being the black outline, creating a 4 colour print.
Individual Garment Folding/Packaging/size labelling
We offer your brand the chance to further personalise your garments with our folding, packaging and tagging service.
What is gold and silver foil screen printing? This is a process that requires the same set up as a normal screen print run, so a screen is needed for each colour in the design. The differance with foil transfer printing is that instead of screen printing an ink onto the garment, a specialist foil adhesive is printed through the screen and cured onto the garment. Following this the foil (normally gold or silver) is cut to size off a roll and placed on top of the adhesive. This is then heat pressed using our industrial press, until the foil bonds with the adhesive, creating a long lasting and shiny print.
The advantage of silver and gold foil transfer printing is that the result is a brillant metallic finish which will glisten in the light. We have had some stunning results with this and some very happy customers.
As the are so many varibles when pricing silver foil transfer printing, we have not included a price structure for this service.
In order for us to give you an accurate quote on silver, gold or coloured foil printing, we would need to see the design and know the following, as the unit price will depend on these elements:
- Quantity of your order.
- Size of the print.
