Screen Printing Process

Questions & Answers

The screen printing process is a direct printing technique. With this printing technique a mesh is used to transfer ink onto the material to be printed.

Primary packagings made of plastic or glass can be printed. Furthermore, it is also possible to print opal glasses, acid etched glasses or for example glasses such as blue glasses as well as aluminum bottles.

Normally, all types of flat, round or convex shapes can be printed. However, to be on the safe site with special shapes we verify the realisation of the print in advance.

Depending on the product, we can print up to 4 colours successively in one printing step for a design in our production.

 In regards to the printing of plastic products we can print all pantone colours. Whereas the screen printing of ceramic products has certain restrictions due to pigments and burning criteria which have to be explained further.

Smaller quantities of approx. 1,500 pieces are possible.


The durability of direct printed images can last for several years provided that there are appropriate ambient conditions (a reduced UV light, no contact with sharp or sharp-edged objects, or leaking material).


The printed image consisting of ceramic colours will be burnt at 600 degrees which merges with the glass. Therefore, this printed image will last forever.

It only differs in the drying of the colours. While the colours for the glasses are being burned we use UV light for the plastic products.
