Screen printing is a simple form of printing with a screen Originally silk was still used now with synthetic material screens. This is a very simple and uncomplicated form of print that is popular for custom stickers. It can be done by hand and is usually monochromatic or limited to just a few colors. For custom stickers ink is used as ultraviolet hardened pigmented colors. The image to be printed is cut by a stencil and creates a positive image to be printed. This stencil is laid over the substrate or the material on which the image is to be printed. The screen is then placed over the stencil The appropriate amount of ink is administered and then pressed through the screen with a rubber sheet which is also known as a spark. For monochromatic prints this process is only done once for multi-color prints the process must be repeated for each color after the last color has dried.
Flexography is another name for surface printing. This process is often used for commercial label printing as it allows fast and high volume printing. This is done as a stamp because there must be a reverse main image used to print. A specified amount of ink is applied to the mast for each printout The master contacts the substrate by rolling over it and leaving the intended image. The term flexo comes from the flexible nature of the pressure itself. This process was originally developed for printing on uneven surfaces such as cardboard in order to be able to print a quality on such a surface it is necessary to have a method of printing that allows constant and even contact with the writing surface. Flexographic printing in the glue industry is for the most part intended for indoor use or limited use for example. in shipping or packaging. This includes paper boxes packaging of plastic packaging for plastic bag bottles and all other commercial uses except custom sticker printing.
Letterpress printing is another standard for printing stickers. This type of printing is also known as relief printing. This means that the image is printed from an elevated area. You can simply imply the process from the name itself You actually press the letter to create the image. This is the technique used for removable type printing and for set-block printing as well. Guthenberg Bible The first book ever printed was made in 1456 as Johannes Gutenberg was the inventor of the moving type of blockwriter. This was the standard for printing for the next five years. Letterpress is designed for simple mass projects. This process only allows one color to be applied at a time so that these types of projects are typically monochromatic or limited to two colors.
Offset printing means the definition of the process in its name. Which offset pressure means there is an extra step in the process. The image to be printed does not apply directly. The transfer is compensated which means that the transferred image goes from the plate cylinder to the rubber transmission cylinder before it is attached to the intended intended pressure. The displacement process is used in conjunction with the lithographic printing process. Offset printing offers a range of strong and vibrant colors that can be used for more eye-catching designs. This effect is produced with a four-color process.
Digital printing is the latest development in printing. This type or print provides maximum flexibility when handling the print image before printing. The printout is a reproduction of a digital image. Digital printing is fully customizable from one print to the next enabling changes in color editing of the image and limiting the amount of wasted chemicals and paper used in the process. Digital ink differs from other colors used in other processes as they are not absorbed in the print media. rather they form a layer on top of the print material.
The ink used for customized adhesive printing is specially designed for outdoor use to withstand ultraviolet rays and weather changes. Digital printing provides a wide range of colors to use. Digital printing is easy and is often used for commercial purposes such as custom sticker printing personal use and small businesses. The main advantage of digital printing is port portability and does not need to create a main board for printing.
