FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is screen printing and how does it work?

In the screen printing process, inks and lacquers are applied to a wide variety of materials through a screen with the help of a squeegee. The screen is a fabric-covered frame that is covered by a stencil with the imprinted pattern. This ensures that the ink only reaches the substrate through the permeable areas, which creates the print.

What can I use screen printing for?

Screen printing impresses with its flexibility, as it can be used to print on paper products as well as plastics, metals, glass, wood, PVC, aluminium or textiles. The process is therefore mainly used for the high-quality design of advertising and mailings, product packaging of various kinds or for textile printing.
