Why Silk Screen Printing?
Screen printing has long been the industry standard for superior quality apparel and other material printing. It’s a cost-effective process designed to make art and colors pop wherever it’s used. As is obvious from its name, screens are key to obtaining the best silk screen printing results. While printing was originally done with actual silk screens, today polyester screens are the industry standard.
The process is fairly simple, but it can take years of practice to become experienced and skilled in this ancient art. High quality artwork is a vital part of the silk screen printing process.
Commercial Silk Screen Printing
Since the invention of the multicolor rotary silk screening press in 1960, the process has become more automated. In commercial settings, fully-automated inkjet-to-garment printing and drying machines have replaced the traditional silk screen stencil and drying process. Automation has allowed for a much more efficient and cost-effective use of silk screening, giving T-shirts and other items a high-quality appearance that airbrushing cannot achieve.
Silk Screen Inks
Because silk screen printing is a simple process, a much wider range of inks and dyes are available thank in other printing processes. Silk screen printing inks are fairly viscous and have distinctly different properties from other ink processes. There are five types of screen ink: water, solvent, water plastisol, solvent plastisol, and UV curable. Plastisol inks are most commonly used for printing on textiles.
The latest innovation in plastisol inks is one made from soybean oil. Soy-based inks are soft and very stretchable and work perfectly on fabric blends, and they come in a fantastic range of colors. Pangea is proud to offer these eco-friendly inks to all our San Francisco customers.
