About Screen Printing

Screen printing is a cost effective form of printing and with advances in techniques, inks and equipment images, can be quickly and affordably placed on just about any surface

As an industry leading company, our custom screen printing services use only the latest up to date imaging technology to insure replication of your design at the highest quality, giving us the ability to reproduce near photographic effects. We provide a wide variety of rigid and flexible materials for use both indoor and outdoor.

What is screen printing?

Screen printing is a method in which a drawing is printed on a surface by ink through a stencilled-screen that is stretched over a frame. The screens are treated with a light-sensitive emulsion, then film positives are put in contact with the screens and exposed to light. Afterwards, the light hardens the emulsion that is not protected by the film, leaving a soft area on the screen. The ink is pushed through the soft area by a squeegee.

We can print on a variety of mediums including metal, plastic, corflute or just about any other material. We can cater for small quantities right up to extremely large quantities of signs. No job is too small or too big for our production facilities.

The advantages of screen printing

One of the advantages of screen printing is that almost any material, rigid or flexible, that can be laid out flat, can be printed, including large or irregular shaped objects.

When used on stickers or signs, screen inks are applied in a thicker layer and are more durable than any other ink system. Screen inks last for years and are suited to outdoor use and a wide variety of ink systems have been developed for almost any type of textile, plastic or surface coating.

The screen printing process is suited to applications requiring durable prints and vivid colours. Other printing processes cannot provide the substrates or ink systems for long life.
