The limit of this method, however, is that printing cannot reach the exact edge of the printing surface. Digital printing offers the advantage of being able to produce different prints at each stroke, but still with the limits of speed with regards to printing and thickness of the film of the inks deposited on the surface.
Despite the coming into use of these alternative printing methods, screen printing maintains its significant and undeniable market share, due to some particular characteristics, making them therefore fundamental for numerous applications.


Screen printing - the method
The method used for screen printing is based on a screen printing frame, where the image to be printed is impressed, which can reach up to 6 metres in length and with printing speeds of up to 800 items per hour. The silk printing screen has particular...
