Silk-screen printing

The silk-screen printing of Italbond as art and technique.

Even before being a printing process, screen printing is an art, a truly versatile and creative printing technique.

Our screen printing allows the use of a wide range of varnishes and inks.

With this technique it is possible to use:

gloss or matt varnish; pearlescent powders; glitter; microencapsulated perfumes; heat-sensitive inks; phosphorescent inks; the scratch card; rough effect paints; paints that create thickness or embossing.

Screen printing as an ennobling process.

The Screen printing is a technique that allows the transfer of varnish from the frame to the support to be ennobled. This transferiment is possible by the pressure and scrolling of a bar with the transfer of one color at a time.

The support that screen printing allows to work makes it very precious. For example, all the special uncoated papers, the bookbinding fabrics, which offset has difficulty to print and which are instead printable in screen printing, thanks to the high coverage of the varnish and the greater quantity that can be released from the frame. The same is true for plastic substrates, such as polypropylene, PVC, synthetic leather, even of high thickness.

This finishing technique allows to obtain prints with vivid and brilliant colors for an accurate and high quality final result, it also offers the possibility of printing on numerous types of support:

  • coated and uncoated paper and cardboard
  • special treated cards
  • metallized papers
  • PET and other plastic materials
