Silk Screen Printing
Formrite offer a full screen printing and labelling service including the ability to produce artwork from various file formats.
Screen printing is a printing technique that uses a woven mesh to support an ink-blocking stencil to receive a desired image. The attached stencil forms open areas of mesh that transfer ink or other printable materials which can be pressed through the mesh as a sharp-edged image onto a substrate. A fill blade or squeegee is moved across the screen stencil, forcing or pumping ink through the mesh openings to wet the substrate during the squeegee stroke. Basically, it is the process of using a mesh-based stencil to apply ink onto a substrate.
One color is printed at a time, so several screens can be used to produce a multicoloured image or design. Formrite use the most widely used commercial colours to screen print. See the colour charts in our downloads section for all available colours.
