What is screen printing?
Screen printing is the use of silk screen as a plate base, and through the photographic plate-making method to make a screen printing plate with graphics. Screen printing consists of five elements, screen printing plate, squeegee, ink, printing table and substrate. The basic principle of printing is that the graphic part of the screen plate is permeable to ink and the non-graphic part of the screen is not permeable to ink. When printing, ink is poured into one end of the screen printing plate, and a squeegee is used to apply pressure to the ink part of the screen printing plate, while moving at a uniform speed toward the other end of the screen printing plate, and the ink is squeezed by the squeegee from the mesh of the graphic part to the substrate during the movement.
What are the advantages of screen printing?
(1) Not limited by the size and shape of the substrate.
General printing can only be carried out on a flat surface, while screen printing can not only be printed on a flat surface but also on special shapes of molded objects such as spherically curved surfaces, with the shape of things that can be used for screen printing.
