Screen Printing of Self-Adhesive Labels

1. Overview #

Screen printing, also known as silkscreen printing, is a traditional printing technique, known for its thick layer of ink and bright colors, making it particularly suitable for printing self-adhesive labels requiring striking colors and unique effects.

2. Technical Features #

The main features of screen printing can be summarized as follows:

  • Thick ink layer: Screen printing has a thick ink layer, which can make the printed colors full and bright, very suitable for printing self-adhesive labels that require striking colors.
  • Special effects: Screen printing can provide unique printing effects, such as metallic texture, glossiness, etc., suitable for self-adhesive labels that require these special effects.
  • Suitability for various materials: Screen printing can be done on a variety of materials, whether smooth or rough surfaces, offering greater flexibility in material selection for self-adhesive labels.

3. Current Development #

With the advancement of modern technology, screen printing is also constantly innovating and progressing. There have been noticeable improvements in print accuracy, speed, and environmental friendliness. Currently, digital screen printing technology dominates the printing market, offering higher printing accuracy while significantly improving printing efficiency. In terms of environmental protection, modern screen printing technology is also exploring the use of more eco-friendly inks and plates.

4. Pros and Cons #

Advantages: #

  • Print quality: Screen printing can provide high-quality print effects, especially in cases where striking colors and special effects are needed.
  • Diverse applications: Due to the multi-material applicability of screen printing, its application range is very wide.

Disadvantages: #

  • Environmental issue: Traditional screen printing inks may contain substances harmful to the environment, and corresponding environmental protection measures need to be taken during the printing process.
