Why You Should Consider Our Silkscreen Printing Process

If you’re looking for the perfect label printing solution for your new product, it can be difficult to make a decision with a number of options available to you. There are a number of variables which go into picking the right type of printing for your requirements, as it is completely dependent on the sector you work in and the product you are looking to launch.

In this article, we will give you insight into why silkscreen printing is so popular and some of the main benefits of it over other printing methods. We will also highlight which industries and products silkscreen printing is best suited to.

Why Is Silkscreen Printing So Popular?

Our silkscreen printing process is regularly used by many of our clients, as we are capable of offering a range of materials that can be printed onto, which also come with a wide array of finishes. We have the capability of creating gloss, anti-glare and selective textured finishes in order to guarantee absolute clarity of the display windows on your product. All of this comes together to achieve a contrast between the text and background areas of the label. Silkscreen printing is also ideal as we have the capability of colour matching all of the inks used in this process to standards including the likes of Pantone, RAL and BS.

If you are looking for a high-quality printed panel, then silkscreen printing is also an ideal solution for this as it can be carried out on pre-anodised aluminium, ensuring a long-lasting and durable finish on any panels.
