Silkscreening consists of printing ink through a photographically treated screen onto SKS containers or closures for personalized decoration. There is a range of inks that can be used, including epoxy or UV curable inks to match your intended uses and desired look. A screen is created for each color of the image and then stored for future orders in order to maintain consistency.
What is the Minimum Order?
Depending on the container or closure, minimums can be as low as 10,000 pieces per silkscreen production run. With options like one-pass decorating and multi-pass UV high speed silkscreening, SKS can help choose the method that is best for your product and image specifications. There is a one-time set up fee to create each customized screen, but these fees are not applied to future production runs.
