Features of Screen Printing:
1. The printing principle is easy to understand. Plate making and operation are simple and diversified
Screen printing is done by forcing ink through hollow hole patterns. It is easy to understand and learn. Various methods for plate making are available.
2. Unlimited substrates
In general, everything except air and water can be printed on. Though the subjects of common printing methods are plain paper or thin slices of materials and their sizes are subject to equipment specifications, screen printing can be applied regardless of surface evenness, not to mention flat surface and thin pieces. Variable printing areas can be used.
The ink thickness of different formats is typically not the same. The ink film of the screen printing ink has the biggest coverage and can print white on backgrounds of a deep color. This can't be done with other formats. Also, the ink film features a stereo texture, creating exceptionally dazzling colors.
4. Screen layout is soft and flexible
The plate has the flexibility and softness of a silk screen, which is ideal for printing on hard objects and curved surfaces.
5. Low printing pressure
The process of screen printing is performed by scraping with a scraper. Therefore, thin materials can be printed on.
