Automating the screen printing artwork and separations process is a dream for most print shops. Now, it's a reality: use GraphXsource and Printavo together.

Here's how it works: the GraphXsource team acts as a remote employee on your Printavo account. You control what they can and can't access. Their team of experts can provide high-quality service for virtually every aspect of artwork in screen printing.

You can use Printavo's cloud-based shop management system to communicate directly with the GraphXsource team: it's the simplest way to store and exchange art files – and communicate on a single platform.

Most shops use Production Files directly within Printavo to seamlessly send artwork, separations, digitizations, and more to the GraphXsource team.

The GraphXsource team are adept in a variety of in-demand screen printing artwork skills, including:

  • Creating proofs
  • Vectoring and re-vectoring
  • Creating mockups for online stores
  • Digitizing
  • Separations (from CMYK to simulated process)
  • Turning ideas into completed designs

Additionally, multiple shops report that the GraphXsource team is exceptionally fast – just as fast as an in-house art department, if not faster.

How quickly does GraphXsource deliver art?

Very quickly! Here's an example order that Steven Farag from Campus Ink outlined:

  1. 3PM: Order approved by customer
  2. 4:05PM: Proof requested from GraphX
  3. 4:30PM: Proof uploaded by GraphX
  4. 9:40AM, next day: Sent to customer for final approval
  5. 9:48AM: Approved by customer
  6. 9:50AM: Sent for separations by GraphX
  7. 10:30AM: GraphX uploaded separations
  8. 11AM: Job on press
