The Benefits of Commercial Screen Printing
In the printing industry, commercial screen printing has become a go-to option. Learn about the many benefits of screen printing for commercial purposes:
Thick Ink: Screen-printing is a printing technique that involves an extra thick layer of ink. This makes it possible to apply the ink to a wide variety of surfaces — or “substrate.” “Substrate” is a technical term that is used for an item that is being printed.
Variety: The days of printing a one-colour graphic on a sweatshirt are done. Screen printing will allow your company to have more choice of varnish and dyes in comparison to other printing processes. Thanks to digitized images and computerized software, even the most complex of designs can be produced, edited and printed.
Additionally, not only does screen printing provide more options for designs, but it can be applied to a larger selection of items. Designs can be screen-printed on everything from apparel to key-chains, to travel mugs. Screen printing is unique in that it can be used on any substrate.
Durable: With screen printing, you don’t need to worry about ink fading with wear or use. The process applies as much visual impact to a dishwasher-safe coffee mug as it does to outdoor banners and advertising displays. When it comes to screen printing, colours are vibrant, printed surfaces are durable, and inclement weather has little or no effect.
Efficient Production Cycle: Over the years, practically everything about screen-printing has been improved — this includes the presses, dryers, and ink formulations. Now, the production process is far less labour-intensive, cost-effectiveness has been optimized, and the quality of the finished product has been enhanced dramatically. This streamlined process makes it ideal if you are dealing with specific needs and tight deadlines.
Automated Process: Screen printing automation is the key to its productivity. It allows presses to operate endlessly, and with little effect on quality output. Better-quality drying systems also contribute to an improved production process. Technological advancements and innovations like the “rotary screen press” allow for uninterrupted operation, especially when it comes to larger-scale projects.
Environmentally Friendly: The commercial screen printing industry has made major changes to its processes to make it more environmentally friendly. The industry now uses sensitizers. This is much safer than bichromates, the toxic materials that were traditionally used in the process. Pre-sensitized chemicals are now used to create the stencils that are required in the technique’s printing process.
Due to its quality results and mass application capabilities, screen printing can be used for a wide range of marketing materials from business cards to banners to t-shirts. It’s up to you how you want to use your company’s marketing dollars for screen printing.
Due to the fact that the process is automated, it’s ideal for large volume orders. Get your logo printed on a bulk order of bags, shirts, mugs — whatever you may need for your next company event.
