How to Center a Design for Silk Screen

Step 1

Lay the garment on a flat surface, with the side to be silk-screened facing upwards.

Step 2

Measure the width and length of the garment. Write down the measurements.

Step 3

Divide the length and the width measurements in half.

Step 4

Using the half-width and half-height measurements from Step 3 as coordinates, place a piece of masking tape in the center of the garment where the two measurements intersect. This is the center of the garment.

Step 5

Measure the width and length of the design. Write down these measurements.

Step 6

Divide the length and width measurements of the design in half, just as you did with the measurements for the garment.

Step 7

Using the half-width and half-height measurements from Step 6 as coordinates, place a piece of masking tape in the center of the design where the two measurements intersect. This is the center of the design.

Step 8

Place the design on the product, matching up the two tape marks to center the design.

Step 9

Remove the tape before proceeding with the silk-screening process.
