Screen Printing

Screen Printing

Screen-printing can be used to print precise designs in multiple colours on top of metals, plastics or vinyl.

The screen print process puts ink onto the surface through a prepared screen of fine material to create the design. 

Screen-printing can be done on a maximum thickness of 10mm, and single size of 380x500mm.

Where there is no limit to the number of colours, for each colour, a separate design screen is required.

This method is best used for less-permanent requirements: unlike engraving etching, screen-printing works by printing a design on top of the material, therefore may wear in harsh environments or over a long period of time.
