Screen Printing

Useful information


Compared to other graphic techniques such as woodcut, etching and lithography, screen printing is a very new process. The commercial version is barely 100 years old, while the artistic version is barely 50 years old. Despite this, screen printing has a long tradition. Screen printing techniques were developed from stencil printing around the mid-19th century. Screen printing has many advantages compared to other printing techniques. Screen printing can be done on anything that takes color. This includes almost any material, any surface, any shape, and any format – ranging from curved shapes and surfaces to physical objects. The process is used in nearly all commercial and industrial sectors. We also provide graphic screen printing, which involves printing labels and signs and creating them with a cutting plotter, and technical screen printing. We can manufacture scales, type plates, labeling foils, special front foils, etc. in a wide variety of shapes and designs.

Printing process:


Screen printing is a printing process in which color is applied to a material with a squeegee through a screen cloth (silk-screen printing process). In preparation for this process, a thin, light-sensitive coating is applied flat to a fine-meshed screen cloth normally made of synthetic fibers. After exposure to the pre-produced film, the coating is washed away on the areas to be printed and the coating on the non-printing areas combines with the screen meshes.
