Take a look at common FAQs for silk screen printing below. If you have any other questions feel free to reach out to our team.

What is silk screen printing, and how does it differ from other printing methods?

Silk screen printing, also known as screen printing, is a printing technique where a mesh screen is used to transfer ink onto a substrate, such as paper, fabric, or metal. It differs from other methods like digital printing or offset printing because it allows for thicker layers of ink to be applied, resulting in vibrant colours and textures.

What is the silk screen printing process?

In silk screen printing, a stencil of the design is created on a mesh screen, typically made of polyester. The screen is then placed over the substrate, and ink is applied to the top of the screen. A squeegee is used to push the ink through the mesh, transferring the design onto the substrate. Each colour in the design requires a separate screen and printing pass.

What materials are compatible with silk screen printing?

Silk screen printing is compatible with a wide range of materials, including paper, cardboard, plastics, glass, metal, fabric, and wood. This versatility makes it suitable for various applications, from signage and packaging to textiles and promotional products.

How durable are products created using silk screen printing?

Products created using silk screen printing are highly durable and resistant to fading, scratching, and abrasion. The thick layers of ink applied during the printing process ensure that the designs remain vibrant and intact, even with frequent use or exposure to harsh conditions.

Can silk-screen printing be customised to match specific brand colours and designs?

Yes, silk screen printing offers extensive customisation options, allowing for precise colour matching and intricate designs. Pantone colour matching ensures that brand colours are accurately reproduced, while the flexibility of the process enables the creation of unique and complex patterns.

What are the advantages of using Fluorescent Colours, Iridescent Effects, and Optically Variable Inks in silk screen printing?

Fluorescent colours enhance visibility and attract attention, making designs stand out in various lighting conditions. Iridescent Effects create a shimmering, multi-coloured appearance, adding depth and dimension to printed materials. Optically Variable Inks provide security features, such as colour-shifting properties, that help deter counterfeiting and ensure authenticity.
