PRINTING TECHNIQUES

DIGITAL PRINT
SCREEN PRINTING
RAST PRESSURE

DIGITAL PRINT

With digital print, the flag is literally printed by a printer. Then it is passed through a heat press to strengthen the colors and washed to prevent spillage. This way of printing is simple, fast and suitable for full color images.

Benefits:

- Suitable for small run

- Suitable for full color

- Fast to produce

Nadelen:

- Limited color palette

- Limited push-through

SCREEN PRINTING

Screen printing is literal printing on the basis of a sieve. This means that for each color a separate sieve is used that is laid on the canvas and only allows the color on the part where the sieve lets paint through. Most of the costs are in making the sieve, the value of producing large numbers is relatively cheaper than digital printing.

Benefits:

- Suitable for large runs

- Full push-through (100%)

- Almost unlimited color palette

Nadelen:

- Not suitable for small numbers

- Not available for full color designs

- Not suitable for complicated designs (fine lines)

RAST PRESSURE

Raster printing is a variant of silkscreen printing, where it is possible to estimate the quality of silkscreen printing, without sacrificing too much on the design. In principle the same works as screen printing, but with more complex screens to allow gradients / gradients in the design. Rasta printing is relatively rare. It is intended to produce large numbers with more complex (full color) designs.

Benefits:

- Suitable for large runs

- Full push-through (100%)

- Almost unlimited color palette

- Approach full color

Nadelen:

- Not suitable for small numbers

- Not suitable for complicated designs (fine lines)
