The art of screen printing involves applying your artwork to a or silk or polyester screen. This process involves coating the screen with a light sensitive emulsion and exposing it to light with black and white artwork printed on acetate in situ. The black artwork prevents the light curing the coating and once exposed the screen is washed with water revealing the artwork. This process is repeated for each colour required for the job on separate screens.
Ink is then loaded and pushed through the mesh screen with a blade or squeegee forcing ink onto the product by capillary action. The ink can only adhere to the products through the areas not blocked off by the stencil. When more than one colour is required, the ink is left to dry before the next colour is added via an additional screen.
Screen printing is perfect for areas of flat colour and simplistic multi-coloured designs, like Channel 4’s iconic logo, screen printed 5 colour logo here on A5 Moleskine Classic hardback notebook. Screen printing also enables the use of Pantone inks ensuring your brand colours will always appear correctly.
