Digital printing is so convenient, why is there screen printing?
Auther: Pubdate:2020-01-08
      Screen printing has existed since the Qin and Han dynasties more than 2,000 years ago. It belongs to stencil printing and requires plate making before printing. Digital printing is a new technology of modern printing, including digital sublimation, digital transfer, digital direct injection, etc. are all based on digital printing. Digital printing does not require plate making, and it is so convenient, so why screen printing?


       Many people think that digital printing is more convenient than screen printing. No matter how complicated the pattern is, it can be printed directly, which is perfect. However, this is not the case. I collected some data from the Internet, including testing for color fastness, including dry and wet rubbing. The fastness of digital direct injection is at the bottom. In high-end printing, digital printing is not the first choice.

       Digital printing needs to be able to print complex patterns, and it can handle color transitions better, but digital printing can really restore the patterns you want. Although screen printing is relatively weak in color overlay, it can handle many special processes. For example, in terms of clothing, there can be many special styles printed, such as the overprint glue that AAPE often uses, and his glue can see the texture of the cloth. For example, the bright-faced PU often used by CK, and the retro-washed slurry often used by Reeves. In addition, there are too many special craftsmanship. According to the style of the design draft, different craftsmanship are used to make a very successful design.



       Although digital printing is convenient and fast, in some fields, digital printing has irreparable defects, so screen printing plays a pivotal role in some high-end industries due to its good printing effect.
