Screen printing makes use of a stencil (or screen), and using this, layers of ink are applied to the printing surface, one at a time. For each new colour, a different screen is used.
Rudd Macnamara operate four semi automatic Kippax screen printers and have a similar number of hand bench work stations. We also have a large format screen print machine.
Screen print is great for printing solid colours where four colour process printing does not necessarily deliver a suitable depth of colour. Screen printing can also adapt to a wide range of inks from different suppliers with different characteristics. This makes it possible to introduce specialist compound pigments to the inks to achieve very specific results.

Rudd Macnamara offer screen printed nameplates and signs that provide excellent properties:
