Perhaps we can all thank pop artists of the 1960s for the widespread popularity of screen printing today. Although one of the most common methods to mass produce branded materials economically, screen printing is so much more than a means to create colorful signage or labels.
Color: The sky is definitely the limit where color is concerned in screen printing. Whether a single color is desired, or an array of tints and shades, this process is exact, with each hue vividly defined.
Surfaces: Screen printing is suitable for a diversity of surfaces. It virtually breaks through all product barriers, making it possible to transfer a single message onto fabrics, metals and even plastics.
Time-Tested: Screen printing on silk dates back to the Song Dynasty of China, 960-1279. On display at the Met Museum is a scroll of the Song Dynasty with color still true after more than a thousand years. Certainly this is proof that screen printing is a time-tested craft that has proven itself worthy. Current techniques now make a royal art form within reach of everyone.
Pop-Art: America’s favorite pop-artist, Andy Warhol, is famous for his vibrant use of color. His images have been screen printed on everything imaginable, like ceramic coffee cups, leather handbags, and exterior metal signage. Throughout every home and business, a plethora of screen printed products can be found. In fact, you may even be wearing some, like a graphic arts T-shirt.
Metals: For signage and identification plate projects with color distinction, screen printing is a popular choice. Bright colors immediately capture the attention. Whether you hope to alert employees to a risk or catch the eye of consumers, screen printed metal plates will certainly garner attention with vivid images and clear messaging.
