The softest way to print
Discharge ink is a modern, soft way to print on shirts, and Vacord has been a pioneer in discharge since 2008.
because quality matters
By removing the shirt's dye and then replacing it, instead of laying heavy ink on top, we can produce super soft results.
Not all screen printing companies print and cure their shirts properly, and that's why they crack, peel or fade over time.
Vacord uses proper technique and professional equipment to create custom printed shirts and hoodies that last years and years.
Your shirts should look, feel and wear just as good after ten years as they did the first week. We know how to make that happen.
This shirt was printed in 2013 using white discharge inks. It's been washed and worn by Vacord's founder Stuart dozens of times over the years, and the print still looks bright, and the shirt itself still fits well like it did the first time it was worn.
Once you've placed an order with Vacord, we'll create your own store so that you can re-order past designs easily, on the same garments as before as well as on suggested apparel custom picked for you.
One thing that Vacord does to stand out from other screen printers is provide our clients their own private merch store to reorder their swag.
This is great for restaurants, businesses, and any organization that may want to just re-order their past designs easily and quickly on their own.
Screen Printing isn't generally an environmentally-friendly craft, but we do our best to be as green as possible.
Shirts stacked to the sky
I've used Vacord for both business and peronal projects, and always been impressed by their great attention to detail, the responsiveness of the staff, and friendly service. Vacord works with you to make the best product within your limitations, (price, colors, etc) and never disappoints.
Vacord uses quality materials in their products. I'm very proud to say we have been their customer for many years and plan to be for years to come!
I got lots of help over the phone, setting the design correctly. The pricing for such a quality product was very reasonable. The t shirts came out looking better then I expected! The discharge printing has allowed the t shirts to just become even softer with no wear on the print. Friendly- helpful and efficient. I highly recommended Vacord printing for quality products.
Awesome quality, always on time, and when it comes to customer service you go way above and beyond.
Director of Marketing
The screen printing we ordered came exactly as how we wanted it (the design size and position) and proof was accurate with the shirts received. Quality of the shirts were also great!
I like how you guys work with me in choosing the right blank whether its a shirt or hat etc. For a couple projects I needed some help with file prep for best product, halftone conversion, etc. It really helped me out- the graphics came out exactly as I intended based on my original artwork.
Adam runs the shop day to day, overseeing everything. As an expert in screen printing, he ensures every order is printed to the best possible degree of quality.
Also, he wishes he could wear his Umbros shorts daily.
Becky is who you will probably talk to the most during your order process, as she oversees all customer support.
She's sharp as a tack and sweet as sugar and will work with you to make sure your project turns out awesome.
Stuart started printing shirts in his laundry room in 2006, called it Vacord Screen Printing, and grew it to what it is today.
Instead of pulling squeegees and making screens, he focuses on growing Vacord and mostly does sales and marketing (his passion).
Vacord started in a basement in West Philadelphia in 2006 and since has grown into a (seasonally adjusted) staff of eight people or so in Camden, New Jersey.
We're right outside the city, and will never forget our Philadelphia screen printing roots.

People are always concerned about how long printed shirts will last.
And with good concern!
Because there are a lot of bad printers out there, using bad methods, bad skills and bad equipment.
A properly printed shirt should never fade. Nor should it crack or peel off.
When I told my business partner I was going to write an article about how to get vintage looking custom shirts, he said “oh good, because everyone wants that!”
And of course they do. They’re more interesting, they’re often better looking, and they can sell better if you’re ordering shirts to resell for your business.
Confused about getting custom screen printing for the first time?
Worried you’re going to spend a lot and then not like the end results?
Getting custom t-shirts, custom hoodies, or custom tote bags doesn’t need to be intimidating or confusing, and we work hard at Vacord Screen Printing to help first time customers understand how to get the process started and how to make it as easy as possible.
