Screen Printing is one of the most popular and cost effective methods of printing in the promotional products industry.
Screen Printing is a type of stencil printing, where ink passes through a fabric or mesh screen. These screens are made from thin fabrics, traditionally silk but nowadays usually a synthetic alternative, which is stretched tightly over a metal or wood frame. A stencil is created to block off parts of the screen in the negative image of the design to be printed. When ink is passed through the screen, the ink does not penetrate through the impermeable stencils, the end result is the design printed in the positive (correct form) onto the final product.
Screen printing is best used onto flat surfaces, such as papers, metals or wood; and is a process commonly used in the promotional products industry for decorating branded clothing, business stationery, sticky notes etc.
Screen printing is favoured as a printing method as it produces excellent quality, long-lasting results and is great value for large volume orders.
