Screen printing has been around for centuries. It is a common form of printing used for a variety of purposes. The screen printing process is a simple one but requires precision, especially when printing with multiple colors.

Also known as silk-screening, mesh is used to transfer ink onto the desired substrate. A stencil blocks the area where ink is not supposed to be transferred through to the substrate thereby printing only the desired image. Our machine holds the stencil in place and a squeegee is used to drag the ink over the surface for the transfer. When a project requires more than one color to be screen printed, multiple stencils will be used and the item will be run through the process once for each color used as only one color can be transferred at a time.

This process takes precision and attention to detail to ensure everything lines up and a quality job is produced on each step for an overall perfect finish.
