One of the most popular decorating options, screen printing (or silk screening). This process involves starting off with camera ready artwork, creating a film positive (a photo image of the artwork), burning the image onto a photo-sensitive specified screen mesh and then pressing the ink through a screen with a squeegee , allowing the color to be applied only where desired. Each color is applied separately using a new screen to give a crisp design. Silk screening inks typically require seven days of curing time to achieve their maximum product resistance after printing:

  • Works on glass (via fusion or ceramic decorating), plastic and metal substrates

  • Closures- the following materials are all candidates for silk screening; Urea, Phenolic, Tinplate, Aluminum, HDPE, LDPE, Polypropylene, PET and vacuum metalized caps

  • Direct-to-surface printing

  • Conventional or UV curable inks

  • Textures can be applied in patterns or to highlight graphics

  • Can decorate 360-degrees of the container surface

  • High-speed production

  • Multi-color capabilities

  • Raised print that you can feel when you pass your fingers over the graphics
