Screen printing involves creating a stencil, then using that stencil to apply a layer of ink onto the substrate. Each colour is applied using a different stencil to achieve the final look.
The benefit of screen printing inks are their vibrancy, depth of colour and when required their opacity. There is a very wide range of inks available for printing onto different and / or unusual materials.
Digital printing has come into its own over the past few years and offers a quality which was previously unheard of in screen printing.
Large format digital printing is roll to roll or flatbed, both of which the company uses. Small format digital is used as a competitive alternative for the smaller runs of flyers, leaflets, letterheads, business cards etc.
Pad printing involves transferring ink from a printing plate, using a silicone pad, onto the object to be printed.
A very simple, but very effective process. Pad printing is the preferred process when the object to be printed is three dimensional and / or awkwardly shaped. With a huge variety of pads, including custom made, most shapes can be printed, even in deep recessed areas
At it most basic screen printing is a simple matter of forcing ink through a stencil. However, with the advancement, over the years, in films and inks the process is now capable of producing excellent quality, eye catching, vibrant, long lasting products. The types of inks now available mean that it is possible to print onto a wide range of substrates, such as paper, vinyl, acrylic, wood, metals, plastics and more.
Pad printing is a printing process that can transfer a 2-D image onto a 3-D object. The process involves an image being transferred from a plate via a silicone pad onto a substrate. Pad printing is used for printing onto otherwise difficult to print on products, in many industries including medical, automotive, promotional, apparel, and electronic objects, as well as appliances, sports equipment and toys.
