Silk-Screen (Serigraphy) Printing (Symbol: SP)
In silk-screen printing a design is imposed on a screen with fine blank areas coated with an impermeable substance. Ink is forced into the mesh openings by the fill blade and by wetting the substrate, transferred onto the printing fabric during the blade stroke. As the screen rebounds away from the fabric the ink remains on the fabric surface. One color is printed at a time, so several screens should be used to produce a label with multiple colors. Therefore, we recommend this technique for single or double color labels. Otherwise flexography or transfer printing can be a better alternative for multicolor projects.
Flexography (Flexo) Printing (Symbol: FP)
Flexography utilizes a flexible relief plate. It is made by creating a positive mirrored master of the required image as a 3D relief in a rubber material. The image areas are raised above the non image areas on the rubber plate. The ink is transferred to the fabric with the help of multiple rolls from the ink tank. We offer flexo printed labels with up to 5 colors.
Transfer Printing (Symbol: TP)
Transfer printing is a technique used to transfer an image from one surface to a label, permanently. Best results with highest resolution are achieved on nonporous surface materials such as satin. But we can also apply it on cotton fabric canvas materials. There is no limitation for the number of colors.
