Hi there! My name is Dina Morganelli. I’m the crazy lady that took over ownership of Image Ink on April Fool’s Day 2020 in the middle of the pandemic. While the timing was terrifying, there have been so many blessings hidden in the transition. We have been intentional about using this time to hire and train amazing people, organize and create systems and processes, and maintain and refurbish equipment. We are determined to be positive about the future and ready to service our customers. I am humbled to have the opportunity to lead Image Ink into the next decade. The joy will be watching this young team grow and define Image Ink as a business that genuinely cares about each other, the quality of work produced, and the customers it serves. Looking forward to working with you on your next project!
Screen printing is the process of printing through a surface (screen) that stretches tightly over a frame. The image itself is created using emulsion and creating a stencil. With a squeegee, ink passes through the stencil onto the printed surface creating your image. Image Ink was founded on knowing how to create designs, separate them into individual colors, and imprint them onto garments with impeccable print quality.
Image Ink is equipped to handle imprints from simple one-color designs to full-color printing on light or dark garments. We specialize in handling complex, fine detailed designs with multiple colors. Our equipment can handle up to 10 imprint colors on a single design. If you need something unique, we offer metallics, glow in the dark, neons, or iridescent bling.
In addition, Image Ink provides water-base and discharge printing. Unlike traditional plastisol ink used in screen printing, the discharge ink essentially soaks into or dyes into the fabric of the garment so that you cannot feel it to the touch! The soft hand feel is incredible. The print process is more extensive, but usually worth the additional cost.
Embroidery is the craft of decorating fabrics and other materials using a needle and thread. Image Ink uses computerized embroidery equipment to sew multiple products at one time, producing your custom decorated garments. Your unique design must be professionally digitized and converted to a file format that is used by the machines to sew onto your garment.
Yes! We can print on that! Promotional products are designed to leave a lasting impression or promote a brand or message through an imprinted image on hard goods such as pens, koozies, bottles, bags, etc… Image Ink has an extensive catalog of promotional products to help brand and promote your business, event, or organization. We will assist you in finding the coolest new items. We have ideas for nifty gifts for employee/customer appreciation or how to stand out at conventions or meetings. Giveaways, holiday gifts, and fundraiser ideas are our specialty.
We can’t wait to collaborate with you! Browse our online catalog, stop by the show room to see samples, or call to brainstorm ideas with us.
