Screen Printing is a popular process which is usually done by using a fine mesh screen onto a substrate. You can find three components in this printing process: Art, Screens, and the Print. For a Screen Printing Company or press, each of the components is equally important, since if one component is not up to the mark, the whole process will be shuttered.

In this process, the ink is printed through the screen smoothly, that can only be learned from years of hand on experience.

Screen Printing Process:

Large Format Screen Printing process actuall starts with the art room. The clients send us an idea and we make it a reality. We first design and send an initial mock up to the client for approval. Once the client has approved the artwork on the virtual mock up, we break down the design into separate colors. This is a fairly difficult and complex process and can only be performed by a professional Jtees Printing company. And this is where we can offer our years of experience to the clientele.

Once the design is separated, it is then etched to a screen using a design exposure unit. The quality of the printing screen should of high quality, so that the outcome of the print is the best. If you use a loose screen, the clarity and saturation will be sacrificed. Here in Jtees Printing company, we have the finest screens available to get the job done right so that it shows the actual detail of the given image.

The process of preparing the screen is vital for screen printing. Once we complete with making the screen, it’s the time to proceed with the print. We owe it to our customers since we use a high technology that the industry has to offer. The ink used in the screen printing is vital and not all inks are created equal. At Jtees prints we have mastered the art of screen printing and formulated the perfect screen printing ink that our customer deserves.

However, if you already have your own design concept, you can share it with us because this will speed up the large format screen printing process.

Foil Screen Printing:

Foil stamping is a special effect that gives a brilliant metallic finish. It can be applied to almost any garment substrate that can withstand the heat and curing process of a typical screen-printing. The main limitation is that the foil will adhere to Plastisol ink, so single color or water-based imprints are recommended. Colors available are generally: Gold, Silver, Copper, Pink, Red, Purple, Royal, and a variety of psychedelic swirls.



4 color process

A printing technique where the artwork is created using dots (CMYK) which combine to create a full spectrum of colors needed for photographic prints. This means a large number of colors can be printed using only 4 screens, making the set-up costs viable. The inks are required to blend and are more translucent. It can compromise the vibrancy of colors. It is difficult to achieve exact PMS colors with 4cp printing, but it is possible to add additional spot colors if needed. 4 color process is best when used on white and light colored shirts.

Plastisol

Plastisol is the most common ink used in screen-printing. They are particularly useful for printing opaque graphics on dark fabrics. Advantages: Plastisol is recommended for printing on colored fabrics. On lighter and dark fabric, Plastisol is extremely opaque and will result in a bright, vibrant color. Plastisol is the easiest ink to match exact PMS colors. The ink is made up of PVC particles suspended in a plasticizing emulsion. Because of this, the ink will not dry in the screen, allowing a long consistent print run with lower reject rates. Disadvantages: Plastisol inks result in a thicker hand and heavier imprint.Because of this, Plastisol ink is not recommended for specialty applications such as printing over seams, collars and full bleed-offs.
