1.Silk screen printing (a type of orifice printing)
Screen printing belongs to stencil printing, which is called four printing methods together with plain printing, embossing, and gravure printing. Stencil printing includes stencil printing, stencil printing, spray printing, and screen printing. The principle of stencil printing is: the printing plate (the aperture of the printing plate or other printing plate can be used to make the ink through the hole) at the time of printing, the ink is transferred to the substrate (paper, ceramic, etc.) through the hole of the stencil through a certain pressure. ), forming an image or text.
Plate making is convenient, the price is cheap, and the batch printing is easy to control. Suitable for use with 1-4 different colors of LOGO. The number is not large and the ink needs to be particularly strong. It is not limited by the texture of the carrier and has a small embossing force. It has strong light resistance and is not easily discolored. With strong adhesion, the printed pattern is more three-dimensional.
Screen printing is only suitable for a single color, a simple transition color, a color gradient effect, or an overly rich pattern cannot be screen printed.
Paper, plastic, wood products, handicrafts, metal products, signs, knitwear, fabrics, towels, shirts, leather goods, electronic products, etc.
2. Hot stamping (also called embossing) commonly known as hot stamping
Hot stamping, commonly known as "hot stamping", refers to the use of hot stamping techniques to emboss the title and seal of hardcover book envelopes, seals, seals, and bookbacks. Pattern.
The pattern is clear, the surface is smooth and clean, the lines are straight, beautiful, colorful and eye-catching, modern; wear, weather, and many colors and patterns, but also can be customized according to specific requirements.
The disadvantage of hot embossing is that it requires high temperature and high pressure, and even for a long time under high temperature and high pressure, for some patterns, it still can only lead to incomplete displacement of the polymer, that is, it cannot completely fill the cavity of the stamp.
Hot stamping is generally used on paper, textiles, leather and other gift packaging. Book cover stamping, gift box stamping, cigarette, wine, clothing trademark and box stamping, greeting cards, invitations, pen stamping and so on.
3. Heat transfer
Thermal transfer is an emerging printing process that has been introduced from abroad for more than 10 years. The printing method is divided into two parts: transfer printing film printing and transfer printing. The transfer printing film printing uses dot printing (resolution of 300 dpi). The pattern is pre-printed on the surface of the film. The printed pattern is rich in layers, colorful, and varied. , Small color difference, good reproducibility, can meet the design effect of the design, and suitable for mass production; Transfer processing through the thermal transfer machine once processing (heat and pressure) Transfer the fine pattern on the transfer film in the product The surface, after the formation of the ink layer and the product surface dissolved as one, lifelike beautiful, greatly improving the product's grade.
It is particularly suitable for making a small variety of personalized and customized products, as well as printing patterns containing full-color images or photographs. It can be used for digital printers with one-time multi-color, arbitrarily complicated color, and transition color printing on any relative flat material such as leather, textile fabric, organic glass, metal, plastic, crystal, wood products, and copperplate paper. , rich levels, small color difference and other characteristics. Ideal for photo printing that requires color transitions.
Not all products can use thermal transfer to print patterns, involving the heat resistance of products, smoothness, and other factors. Need professional thermal transfer equipment, ceramic, metal and other items need a thermal transfer layer on the surface.
Clothes, fabric bags, hats, pillows, mugs, tiles, watches, mouse pads, coasters, hanging calendars, medals, pennants, etc.
