SCREEN & DIGITAL PRINTING

ECI offers both Screen printing and digital printing.

Both have their strengths and weaknesses and both can be equally dynamic aesthetically.

Screen printing is a printing technique that uses a woven mesh with an ink-blocking image or stencil. The attached stencil forms open areas in the mesh that allows printable materials to be pressed through the mesh onto a substrate. A "squeegee" or rubber blade is moved across the mesh, forcing ink into the open areas for transfer during the squeegee stroke.

Screening Strengths  & Weaknesses

  • Bold vibrant colors but not halftone friendly

  • Opacity

  • Repeatable color match

Digital printing refers to methods of printing from a digital-based image directly to a variety of substrates using laser or inkjet process.

Digital Strengths &  Weaknesses

  • Half Tone capability but difficult to match colors batch to batch

  • 3D appearance but poor opacity

  • Exotic graphics

ECI will work with you to decide what technology works best with your needs.
