Screen Printing is one of the best methods for producing images in true-to-life color. It can be used to print on a wide variety of substrates, including paper, paperboard, plastics, glass, metals, fabrics, and many other materials. Screen Printing also cost effective when it comes to producing large quantities.
At Boulevard Graphics we use high quality, durable ink for screen printing. This ensures your order will be durable and long lasting. An important characteristic of screen printing is that a greater thickness of the ink can be applied to the substrate than is possible with other printing techniques. Additionally, a wider range of inks and dyes are available for use in screen printing than for use in any other printing process.
The advantage of screenprinting over other print processes is that the press can print on substrates of any shape, thickness and size. Many factors such as composition, size and form, angle, pressure, and speed of the squeegee determine the quality.
If the item was printed on a manual or automatic screen press the printed product will be placed on a conveyor belt which carries the item into the drying oven or through the UV curing system. Rotary screen presses feed the material through the drying or curing system automatically. Air drying of certain inks, though rare in the industry, is still sometimes utilized.
