Traditionally called silkscreen or silkscreen printing, Screen Printing involves creating a stencil (or “screen”), and then using that stencil to apply layers of ink on the printing surface. Each color is applied using a different stencil, one colour at a time. To obtain a multi-colours image, repeated prints are combined to achieve the final look. There are advantages of using Screen Printing. They are:

  • Cost: Large runs of identical graphics can often be printed economically as compared with digital processes.
  • Resolution: Works well with small text and fine-line illustrations.
  • Versatility:  With special jig, screen printing works well with unusual shapes like specialty parts with large and/or high-profile objects.
  • Ink adhesion:  There are diffferent types of specialty inks that are formulated to work with individual substrates. Screen printed ink adheres much more permanently than digital inks to uncoated surfaces.

 

Some of the industries that use screen printing include:

  1. Industrial manufacturing
  2. Panel builders and system integrators
  3. Engineering, procurement and construction
