Silk screen print

Silk screen printing is a process that uses a mesh screen to transfer ink onto a substrate. This technique is commonly used to print solid opaque colors on packaging materials. Silk screen printing is ideal for printing on surfaces like corrugated, paper, film, and rigid plastic. This process is best suited for low volume printing requirements due to the manual labor involved.

Why use it

  • Opaque and solid color prints
  • Suitable for low-volume order
  • Can be used on a wide range of materials and products.

Why not use it

  • Requires more manual labor than other processes, which increases costs.
  • Clarity of small details can vary greatly, depending on the equipment and substrate.
  • Registration has lower tolerances than other processes when printing more than one color.


Screen printing is a method of printing logos and labels on various packaging materials by pushing ink through a stencil on mesh screens. This technique produces high-quality colors, but the process is more expensive compared to other methods due to the use of separate screens and the labor involved. Screen printing is best suited for bold designs with fewer than three colors, as registering multiple colors is not easy.
