Printing - MD Services BV - Promoting Your Business


Screen-printing was developed around the 17th century, in China and Japan. They used long human hair which was pulled tightly on a wooden frame to create simple shapes. A special kind of polyester thread is now used in factories for this method and instead of wooden frames they now use metal frames.

Depending on the type of print being used, a thicker mesh of 29 threads per cm is usually used for textile, and a thinner mesh of 180 threads per cm is used for a more detailed graphic design.

A photographic stencil is then used to create the desired product, ensuring the ink is printed
with precision to create the desired image. Production can be determined either manually or mechanically depending on the amounts,

This technique is applied on a flat, smooth, even and plain material and is usually used on Promotional Items like bags, key cords, writing folders, beach balls, umbrellas etc.

Pad printing

With this technique the printed image is transferred using a pad print to a gravure print on the article, a kind of ‘stamp’.

The pads are made out of a special silicon rubber which are available in all shapes and sizes.  They are individually shaped and split for each specific item. It is possible to print on most types of material from hollow, convex, hard and soft wood, metal, plastic etc.

By using an ultra thin screen, the full colour images can be compared to those in a photograph.  The printing can be durable and colorfast depending on the treatment given to the material before and after printing.

Sign cutting

Sign cutting is a kind of transferable, however it is made from a flexible material which is attached to a flexible surface.

The surplus particles are then removed and the remaining segment is placed on the item
using a heat press.  The flexible surface on the back can then be removed leaving the desired image.

This is washable and durable.

The best results are achieved with larger images or text. 

This technique is best used when personalising items such as shirts, bags, umbrellas etc.
