Screen Printing


Screen printing is a printing technique where a mesh is used to transfer ink onto a substrate. The screen mesh area uses a blocking stencil or emulsion with an image exposed within it. When printing, a squeegee blade is moved across the screen to fill the open mesh and graphic areas with ink; then a similar print stroke is used which causes the screen to touch the substrate momentarily pushing ink through the mesh openings transferring the image onto the substrate. Screen printing meets many Mil-Spec requirements for industrial marking methods.

Versatility of Screen Printing and Color Control

Screen printing is the method that best allows versatility in its wide range of application and performance capabilities. Not only can screen printing be applied to an incredibly wide range of materials, objects and configurations, but we can also vary the ink deposit to produce film thicknesses of color that no other printing process can obtain.
