Silk Screened Cardboard (SSC)

Ranging from cosmetic packaging (lipsticks, lip balm or mascara etc.), tubes of sun blocker, to mustard pots or oil drums, to medical packaging with functional, printed electronics – screen printing plays an important “specialist” role in the packaging industry. Solutions are available for food packaging with screen printing applications, so that the “best before” date can be quickly and easily determined by the consumer. Even on hardware store shelves, most cartridge packages are screen printed. Small font sizes, high impact value, with extremely high colour stability can all be combined. Even bottle crates are a domain of screen printing; whether directly printed or done with the in-mould process.

One outstanding advantage of the screen printing process is that both flat and round packaging can be printed. The choice of ink systems ranges from conventional solvent-based, UV-based and water-based screen printing inks right on up to glass-ceramic inks. Packaging is often enhanced with “glitter print” or spot varnishing and these are another specialty of screen printing. Screen printing adds lustre and a special feel to packaging.
