Screen printing is a stencil method of print making in which a design is imposed on a screen of polyester or other fine mesh. A number of screens can be used to produce a multi-coloured image or design which makes it ideal for large bold imagery and generally suited for smaller production runs. Unlike Flexo and Litho, screen print does not require pressure as a part of the print process, making it versatile for all types of shapes and substrates and use in a variety of sectors.
Litho printing (lithography) is ideal for high quality volume printing. The image is made of a polymer coating applied to a flexible aluminium plate. Most types of books of high-volume text are printed with offset lithography, making it a great option for fine detail printing on point-of-sale (POS) products.
Digital printing refers to methods of printing from a digital-based image directly to a variety of materials. Digital printing has a higher cost per page than more traditional offset printing methods, but a much shorter turnaround time making it a great solution for ‘one-off’ printing in small volumes to use as mock-ups or prototypes.
