One of the best ways to easily and quickly print designs and promote your brand is screen printing. The technique is widely employed by businesses, colleges, schools, entrepreneurs and anyone who wants to print logos, posters, and apparel for various projects and venture. Today, we want to dive into some interesting facts of screen printing to help you in deciding whether or not this is the right method for your order.
Screen printing has many names, including silk screen printing and serigraphy, but all mean the same thing: a modern printing method requiring ink, a squeegee, and a screen. The procedure involves pushing the ink in via a stencil or a mesh to print a specific design on a material of choice, such as a custom tote bag. Be it an impermeable material or a cutout. The ink then spreads only to the regions allowed by the screen producing a stunning and precise artwork.
The following important points should be considered when choosing a screen printing technique:
How many printed copies do you want? There are some methods with high processing costs but are highly efficient for large jobs. Therefore research well before selecting any method.
Substrate and Subject
In which promo product do you want your design printed? Logos can be printed on t-shirts by most of the techniques we’ve just mentioned, but not all of them can print on paper, metal, or glass. When selecting a printing method, consider this too.
How exactly do you want your printed design to look? Would you like it to have some texture? Your vision or the way you want something printed can also determine a screen printing method that is most suitable.
This is probably the most important consideration. What is your budget for the job? Each printing method has unique costs that may or may not fit within your budget.
Screen printing is a simple and beneficial method of creating perfect screen printed designs. Though it is unlikely that screen printing methods change in the near future, it is very likely that machines become more and more efficient, which would most likely mean beautiful outcomes for cheaper.
