Silk screen printing uses a stencil, transferring ink onto a silk layer underneath, which prints the design onto your chosen material. Silk screen printing services are best for low to medium printing runs with fewer colours. This is because the production process offers superior accuracy and detail over other printing methods.
Silk screen printing produces the high-definition image quality and accurate colour reproduction needed to add that “wow” factor, especially when used as stand-alone spot colours. You can also use our silk screen print four-colour process with or without special additions.
The silk screen printing process is suitable for many materials, like corrugated packaging and folding cartons.
For the best finishes when screen printing onto corrugated materials, we use a clay-coated board to give a flat, even surface on which to print. Our team can guide you to the correct combinations of material and print — get in touch for more information.
Silk Screen Printing Versus Other Printing Methods
Even with constant improvements in digital print quality and ability, silk screen printing is still present in the marketplace. While digital printing has no initial set-up costs and you can edit your designs digitally, silk screen printing produces long-lasting vibrant colours and sharp, clean lines — this is much harder to replicate than with other methods of printing.
