Silk screen and pad printing
Silk screen printing
Silk screen printing is a printing process which uses a wiper-like tool called a squeegee to force the printing ink through a finely-woven fabric (mesh) onto the material to be printed. On those sections of the fabric where the motif does not require ink, the fabric’s mesh openings must be made impermeable by means of a stencil.
With pad printing, the printing block carries in its surface the lower image which is to be printed. The squeegee forces the ink into the lower print image and removes all the excess ink. At the same time as the squeegee is operating, a silicone rubber pad moves from the substrate to the mould. The pad is lowered onto the block and takes over the print image. This means that pad printing is an indirect printing process. The pad then lifts off and moves to the material which is to be printed on.
