Screen printing is the process of pressing ink through a stencilled mesh screen to create a printed design. It’s a popular technique used in a whole range of different industries, so even if you’ve never heard of the term before today, it’s likely that you’ve worn or used
a screen-printed product at some point without even realising. The process is called silk screen printing or screen printing, but all of these names refer to the same basic method.
Screen printing is an effective technique for creating bold canvases, posters and printing on all types of materials that digital will find it almost impossible to do, the method can also be used to print fabrics and textiles, so it’s great for creating all sorts of projects.
One of the reasons that the screen printing technique is so widely used is because it produces vivid colours, even on darker materials. The ink or paint also lies in layers on the surface of many types of materials, which gives the print a vibrant and colourful result.
The technique is also favoured because it allows the printer to easily reproduce a design multiple times. Because the same stencil can be used to replicate a design again and again, it’s very useful for creating multiple copies of the same product. This makes screen printing a very efficient technique for creating large batches of quantities for you project.
When carried out using professional equipment by an experienced printer, it’s also possible to create intricate multicoloured designs. While the complexity of the process does mean there’s a limit to the number of colours the printer can use, it does allow for more intense colouring than is possible to achieve with digital printing alone.
The digital printing definition is a way of printing from a digital-based image directly onto a range of media. The printing process produces an image by mapping out minute droplets of ink onto your chosen surface – creating your image.
Digital printing has become an economically viable way of producing small print runs, and technology accommodates the need to print only the amount you need on demand.
Digital printing presses print the image directly onto the media material. The main difference between digital printing and traditional methods is that there isn’t any need for the printing plates , or Screens to be replaced for multiple colours in production.
A clean, sharp image is produced with the minimal amount of material used for the production process to be effective without any waste.
The files are formatted correctly before being sent to the printer ensuring the results are high-quality and accurate. In many of the digital printing processes, the ink doesn’t permeate the substrate but forms a thin layer on the surface that may have additional adherents added by heat or curing. And much energy is conserved by certain processes and equipment being bypassed – making for a reduced carbon footprint and an eco-friendlier procedure.
Ancyn Guillotining allows the trimming of individual sheets or stacks of paper after printing through the use of a cutting-blade. Guillotining is often used to ensure precise cutting when you have multiple items to cut to the finished size.
Our process of precisely folding completed print items, such as dump bins and display shop units can enhance transportation and presentation for your design. Its a great time-saving option for your product that would otherwise have to be sent out in larger packages.
Laminating adds a thin, transparent plastic coating to printing products. Laminating has both a protective and aesthetic effect. Laminating is also very useful for larger workplace signs and prints that need to be wiped and cleaned for safety.
