Printing Processes

We have multiple printing processes available for our customers.

Screen Printing

Making a Screen

In screen printing, screen fabric is stretched over a frame. The print resolution and the viscosity of the ink determine the grade of the screen fabric and the weight of the fibers. A template coating is applied to the screen fabric either manually or photomechanically. The actual motive to be printed can be anything at all. For example, the template material could be a light-sensitive emulsion. If a printing film on this coated screen is then exposed, the emulsion on the exposed areas hardens and the unexposed areas can be rinsed clean with water.

Printing the Image

A rubber squeegee draws ink across the screen, transferring it through the mesh of the fabric onto the desired material wherever the screen is not coated. The screen is then lifted away and the print piece is ready.

Why Choose Screen Printing:
      • Screen-printing inks are ultraviolet (UV) light-cured, pigmented colors.
      • These inks are glossy and very resistant to chemicals and abrasion.
      • Screen-printed materials are weather proof and waterproof and may be used indoors and outdoors.

Flexo Printing

Flexography is a high-speed printing process that uses flexible plates made of rubber or plastic. The inked plates have a slightly raised image and are rotated on a cylinder to transfer the image to the substrate.

Flexo Printing Has Many Benefits:
      • Flexography is very economical.
      • In addition to creating full-color materials, most flexographic presses accommodate laminating and die-cutting processes to protect the products’ final shape and size.
      • Flexo-printed materials are not weather proof; therefore, we recommend them for indoor use only.
      • Flexo-printed inks will vary slightly in color from our standard screen-printed inks.

 

Digital Printing

Our ever expanding digital printing capabilities range from outdoor durable UV-cured inkjet to detailed indoor-use liquid based toner technology. Digital printing utilizes four-color process (4CP) inks. Process cyan, magenta, yellow and black are combined in varying densities to create a wide range of shades so you can offer more colors without adding additional spot colors.

Digital printing offers enhanced detail and range of colors created by combining cyan, magenta, yellow, and black.

Benefits of Digital Printing:
      • Detailed print quality.
      • Wide range of colors on single printed piece without adding spot colors.
      • Short-run efficiency.
      • The ability to include variable data and barcodes.

I just spoke to a customer service representative about three totally unrelated and unique projects. He was very knowledgeable of your products … that is to be expected. But more importantly, he could not have been more helpful or friendly. Thank you and the management staff for the training that you surely provide to your folks in order to assist your distributors.

The customer care specialists at Stouse are great to work with. They are careful to make sure I have all details needed when quoting custom jobs. They, including the art and production team, are careful to make sure ship dates are met. I especially like getting a sample of the product ordered after each job is complete. This way I know exactly what my client is getting which is always perfect!
