Screen Printing

What Is Screen Printing?

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.

Screen Printing in Birmingham

Rudd Macnamara is a screen printer based in Birmingham, UK. Rudd 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.

How Do We Apply Screen Printing?

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.

When compared with digital print for example, it is not usually cost effective to switch inks once the digital equipment is up and running, so a certain amount of flexibility is sacrificed.
