What is Screen Printing?

The technique of screen printing is based on that of stencilling.

A fine mesh is used as the stencil, a fill blade (squeegee) is used to force through unblocked areas of the mesh and onto the printing surface. Screen printing only prints one colour at a time, so several screens are required to produce a multicoloured design this also increases the time taken to produce the final print.  

The average lead time for a screen printed job is 10 working days (if you need a faster turnaround please discuss this with us).  We are a well established screen printer with over 60 years industry experience, if you would like to find out more about this printing process please get in touch.
