Screen Print

 

Screen printing is achieved by forcing ink through a fine mesh screen with a squeegee onto the product and is ideal for branding flat or cylindrical objects.

Advantages

– Ideal for large solid areas of colour.

– Most screen print inks are quick drying and can be shipped immediately after printing.

– Metallic gold and silver is available.

Limitations

– Halftones and very fine lines are not recommended.

– Close PMS matches are more difficult on darker products and will only be approximate.

– Unable to print variable data.

– A set up charge is required for each colour to be printed.

Artwork Requirements

– Artwork should be supplied in vector format.
