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
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
