We also have our own internal Artwork department to assist you with design and artwork matters, thus enabling us to offer our customers a “complete design to product package”.

Applications


Flat surfaces

Screen Printing has many applications, allowing us to print direct onto the product, or onto an Overlay which is then applied to a panel. This has certain advantages in the fact that overlays are usually under surface printed, and therefore extremely durable, particularly where wear and tear, or constant cleaning of the finished product can be a concern. Overlays also enable printing of more complex designs colours, and the incorporation of clear or tinted windows for displays and LEDs.

Once the overlays are printed, a high performance adhesive layer is applied and any apertures/ complex shapes cut using a digital flatbed cutter, prior to assembly to the required panel. This produces an end product that is professional and hard wearing, whilst maintaining detail and accuracy.

Screen printing also produces excellent results where a good opacity is to be achieved, and is particularly economical for larger print runs.

In addition to Direct Surface Printing and Overlays, Screen printing is also well suited to the printing of high quality labelling where customers may wish to add their name or logo to a product, or where important instructions are required eg. A “Warning label” or “Instruction label”. These labels provide a permanent and quality finish to many of our customers’ products, and are suitable for use both in and outdoors depending on your requirements.

Uneven surfaces and 3D objects

As well as screen printing on flat surfaces Cotswold screen printers can print onto mouldings, uneven and irregular surfaces and 3d objects such as lenses and switch caps. For more information on printing onto 3d shapes please see our Pad Printing literature or speak to one of our team for advice.
