Screen printing: how NIKOFIRM creates branding for corporate merchandise
Silkscreen is a printing method used to create graphic images on various surfaces such as paper, ceramics, metal, and fabric. To create branding, NIKOFIRM uses ECO-friendly inks that are water-based and safe for humans.
NIKOFIRM uses this branding method to print on t-shirts, hoodies, sweatshirts, outerwear, and additional products.
Advantages of screen printing for textile branding:
- High precision, brightness, and sharpness of the image. This is important when using small fonts and thin lines in logos.
- Wide range of applications in the production of various types of merchandise fabrics such as cotton, polyester, nylon, and others.
- High printing speed for large batches. The average printing speed on an automatic screen printing machine ranges from 100 to 1000 units per hour.
The screen printing process includes the following steps:
Step 1: Image preparation
The first step is to prepare the image. The picture is created using computer graphics in a vector format (.ai, .eps, or .pdf).
Screen printing uses the technology of forcing ink through a form of monofilament polyester, polyamide or metal mesh, which is coated with photoresist. Light-sensitive material (photoresist) closes the cells of the stencil and forms a pattern.
Step 3: Ink preparation and application
The stencil is placed onto the fabric, and ink is applied using an automatic machine. The pigment passes through the openings in the metal sheet and forms the image.
Step 4: Drying and fixation
Thermal or chemical treatment is used to fix the image onto the fabric by making the ink penetrate the fibers and remain on the textile.
