WHY SILKSCREEN? IS IT BETTER THAN STANDARD ICON PRINTS?
– Silkscreen printing produces higher fidelity results with more vibrant colors which are hard to replicate using other printing techniques. It also allows for sharper, cleaner lines and more well-defined details.
– Silkscreen printing deposits a thicker layer of ink during the process, which results in more pigment on the material keeping the colors vibrant longer without ever losing the quality of the print.
