Screen Print

Screen printing involves UV inks being applied directly to a product’s surface by forcing ink through a fine screen mesh with the use of a squeegee. Typically, screen printing is applied one colour at a time and are primarily used for logos that are 1 colour. Additional screens are used if the logo has more than 1 colour and pricing is determined based on how many colours are printed. There are two methods of screen printing, Flatbed, and Rotary Screen Printing. Flatbed is suitable for t-shirts and tote bags and Rotary Screen Printing is perfect for drink bottles.

Advantages:

  • Large print areas on flat and cylindrical products are possible
  • Ideal for large solid areas of colour
  • Can PMS match colours on white or light coloured products
  • Screen print inks dry fast, so products can usually be shipped right after printing
  • Metallic gold and silver inks are available upon request

Limitations:

  • Not recommended for logos and designs that have very fine lines and halftones
  • Cannot print variable data
  • Close PMS matches struggle to show up on dark-coloured objects
  • Each colour charges a setup fee
