Screen Silk Print
Silk Screen Printing: One Color at a Time
The principle for Bedplate Print is the same to Screen Print. It’s mainly used in the printing of high-grade silk scarves with complex technology. It needs to make a print format template before printing. The limitation is that it has the problem of Environmental constraints and difficult for large version with overprint.
The silk screen printing process can only apply one color at a time. Each color requires a separate screen, set-up and associated labor charge. You can have as many colors
as you want including metallic, fluorescents and glow-in-the dark material. Large silk screen presses sequence each screen rapidly, to apply all the colors to print the image. The presses must be stopped to load new screens, however. Silk screen presses require continuous tone images, such as photographs, to be converted to halftone dots that match the screen’s density.
