Duluth's On The Limit screen printing process

The following photos were taken at On the Limit  located in Duluth, Minn. Liz Howard has been operating On the Limit for the past 25 years. One of the changes for the screen print industry is the transition to non-phthalate ink. Howard described the ink as how industrial paints had to change because it has sources of lead. Phthalates have been known to have human health effects on the sexual development. Howard says all their inks are at least $60 a gallon because they want to have the best product for their customers. Their largest order was over 3,500 shirts with multicolored front print for Northshore Inline Marathon. And they still like to build relationships with their customers and will do a single shirt for an order. Take a look at the process of screen printing from start to finish.
