“I have nothing but great things to say about Sarah & the whole team at OSI. They have patiently addressed all of my questions/concerns and took special care to make sure my print project turned out beautifully. I highly recommend them for any of your printing needs!”
“We have been using OSI for a number of years now and appreciate their super fast, knowledgable customer service and willingness to source t-shirt fabric options that aren’t something they typically carry. Their screen printing quality is great and lasts for years even with weekly usage, even with intricate designs!”
“We used Oregon Screen Impressions for a variety of screen-pressed articles for a company event. Quality was top notch, and Camille was a big help in selecting articles and made the whole process as smooth and as efficient as possible. Would definitely recommend Oregon Screen Impressions to anyone in need of print services in PDX!”
Reclaiming the Future
Did you know if properly cleaned and cared for, screens can be reused quite a few times? We were the first screen printing company in the U.S. to install a self-contained screen cleaning and reclamation machine, which maximizes efficiency and minimizes what goes down the drain.
Every one of our customers receives the same hands-on care. From the first email or phone call with your OSI rep to the production of your order, we’re here to ensure you’re happy with the result.
With 15 distinct presses, including our new 28-station press, we can handle even the most complex jobs efficiently and with the highest quality standard.
Have confidence that what you order is what we’ll print. A human being in our ink department will physically match the ink for your project to your specified PMS color.
We’re here for you. Making cool things for nice people is why we started this business over 40 years ago. Utilize our skilled team of experts to get exactly what you want (or something even better).

We can save you time by prepping your products to go straight onto store shelves. Let us apply hang tags, handle the folding, and poly bagging. We can even do sew on labels and interior branding to fully customize your goods. Learn more about our Finishing Services.
Techniques & special inks close-up.
Choose from a wide range of popular ink options to create a variety of effects.
We use phthalate free plastisol inks for our standard printing process. They’re super opaque and vibrant with a heavier feel. Try it on dark fabric. Great for all garments.
Get a super soft hand feel with discharge printing. Mix and match with other inks/treatments. Great for dark 100% cotton garments.
Print full-color high-res graphics, like photos, with our simulated process printing technique. 10+ colors! Great for dark or light garments. Try with a discharge underbase for a nice soft print.
Puff & suede inks are fun and tactile. They work well with bold designs. Blister Puff is a variation that builds on the effect of regular puff with a bubbling molten effect. Great on most garments.
Add bling to your design. Metallic inks come in a handful of colors. Gold, copper and silver are the most popular. They work best with designs that don’t have fine details. Great on most garments.
There’s no need to be constrained by a single technique. We can screen print, laser cut, embroider, add appliqué, or use specialty effects to create something completely unique.
Screen Printing FAQ
The art of screen printing has been around for hundreds of years. Screen printing refers to the process where ink is forced through a mesh screen onto a surface with the use of a blade or squeegee. The ink that passes through forms a printed image. Areas of the screen can be blocked out with a blocking stencil.
We can screen print as few as 24 pieces per design. Quantity price breaks are at 48, 72, 120 & 200 pieces per design.
Production times may vary depending on the services you’ve ordered and the time of the year, but our standard turnaround is approximately 10 business days.

Print sizes vary by substrate (i.e. what we’re printing on) and the art. Your OSI rep can help you best determine the print area for your project.
For reference, however, a left chest print on a top would be about 3.5″ wide depending on the height. A front print is usually about 8.5″ to 11″ wide, depending on the height and whether the print is going on a women’s tee or a unisex tee. Back prints are typically 10.5″ to 12″ wide, depending on the heigh and whether the print is going on a women’s tee or a unisex tee.
The largest size we can screen print on flatwork/posters is 38″ x 40″ (one color only). The largest size we can screen print on a t shirt is dependent on the size of the garment and whether you want to print over seams and hems. For the most accurate information, discuss your needs and vision with an OSI rep.
Due to the limitations of screen sizes and pre-fabricated apparel, we are unable to do a literal ‘all-over’ print. However, our creative services team would be happy to help you find a look that gives you the effect you desire.
