Due to the setup cost and preparation time, most print houses have a minimum quantity of 25 – 50 when it comes to printing on silicone caps.

Unlike T-Shirt screen printing, silicone is a non-reactive substance, catalysts are mixed with specialized ink. Customer designs are exposed onto silk using light sensitive emulsions.  Each swimming cap is silkscreened and cured in ovens at high temperatures.  Printing one cap or a batch of 25 takes almost the same amount of time and can use a similar amount of ink. Podium Swimwear is one of the only printing companies in the UK that will print a small number of silicone caps with no minimum order, however a flat rate of £30 applies for setup of silkscreens, mixing of inks and running of extractor fans and ovens.
