Direct silk–screen printing (also known as screening, serigraphy and serigraph printing) is a stencil method of print making in which a design is imposed on a screen of silk or other fine mesh, with blank areas coated with an impermeable substance, and ink is forced through the mesh onto the printing surface.
Screen printing is considered to be one of the most versatile imaging processes. It allows the use of many different inks, chosen for their adhesion and colorfast properties, and is able to print on a wide variety of materials (paper, cardboard, plastics, glass, metals, electronic parts, clothing items etc.).
There are two main types of ink that are used for textile printing: water based ink and plastisol ink. Since UAB Laurema supports ecological ideas, in our production we mostly use eco-friendly water–based inks. These penetrate fabric more than plastisol inks and create much softer feeling. Environmentally friendly ink is a great solution for shirts, sweats, towels, paper and much more. Water–based screen printing inks come in a large variety of colors that makes it easy for clients to choose the exact ink they need. Upon client’s request UAB Laurema may also use plastisol inks.
The main advantages of silk screening are:
» Silk–screen press can print on stocks of any shape, thickness and size;
» High quality prints;
» Very interesting effects are possible to achieve: metallic, embossed, glossy, etching treatment, burned-out effect and others;
» Wide range of inks and dyes is available to use.
