Screen printing allows for making imprints on virtually any kind of substrate (paper, wood, aluminium, polycarbonate, PVC, cotton, synthetic materials, leather, metal, etc.).
Imprints of this type are extremely durable thanks to the applied specialist dyes. Screen printing method is used both in mass production and for limited editions.
This is a perfect method for making imprints on the following materials (the list contains only selected examples): self-adhesive stickers, business cards, folders and files, promotional gadgets (e.g.: lighters, clocks, alarm clocks, calculators, etc.), clothing, caps, umbrellas, carrier bags, poster calendars (overprinting), binders, elements of electronic devices (head panels, masking frames) etc.
ADVANTAGES OF SCREEN PRINTING
Waterproof and resistant to weather conditions, it is also characterized by mechanical stability.
Screen printing method can be used for making imprints on virtually any kind of substrate (paper, foil, synthetics, fabrics, and wood).
Dyes used for screen printing provide the surface with coating or partial coating, and the resulting colours are solid and intense, just like paint used e.g. in oil paintings.
- There is a large variety of dyes, which cannot be applied in offset printing: metallic, brocade, fluorescent, glittery, reflective, "swelling", scratchable and other.
It can be used wherever the imprint must be highly durable.
For making imprints on substrates other than paper and on surfaces with significant thickness (e.g. plastic).
In the case of unusual requirements for the imprint (e.g. special dyes).
For applying overprint varnish (full or selective varnish).
