What is “Rotary Screen Printing”

Rotary Screen Printing is achieved by forcing ink through a fine mesh screen with a squeegee onto the product and is ideal for cylindrical objects.

Advantages of Rotary Screen Printing

  • Large print areas are possible on cylindrical products.
  • Close PMS matches are possible on white or light-coloured products.
  • Most screen print inks are quick drying and can be shipped immediately after printing.
  • Metallic gold and silver colours are available.
  • Many products can print five colours (including white) with tight multi-colour registration.

Limitations of Rotary Screen Printing

  • Close PMS matches are more difficult on darker products and will only be approximate. In some instances, a white base will create a better print.
  • Unable to print variable data.
  • Each colour requires its own setup charge.

Artwork Requirements for Rotary Screen Printing

We will set up the artwork for you and supply an electronic draft to help you visualise what the end result will look like. There are some restrictions we have to take into consideration when setting up your file:

  • Artwork must be supplied in editable vector format.
  • Fonts are advised to be converted to outlines/objects to avoid font conflicts.
