Screen printing is the best product decorating option when a large, bold image is required for a flat plastic part or when a full wrap or two-sided image is required for a cylindrical plastic part, including bottles, buckets or jars. At Unique Assembly & Decorating, we are able to take on your short run or high volume orders to meet your plastic screen printing needs. With screen printing, we are able to print the plastic parts nearly 360° in one pass. With these machines, multicolor images are also achievable but require one pass for each color. We are able to screen print on clear, frosted or colored plastic parts.
PLASTICS WE PRINT ON
- Acetal (Delrin / Celcon)
- Other plastics considered too difficult to decorate or print
For flat plastic parts, such as injection molded equipment panels, signage or large plastic sheets of various types of plastic, we have several semi-automatic machines available. They produce outstanding results for projects that require a few parts, or for a program requiring thousands of parts per order. When screen printing plastic parts on these machines, multicolor images are achievable but require one pass for each color. We can also screen print cylindrical plastic parts using these semi-automatic machines for just a few pieces or a run of several thousand. For example, we can screen print plastic tapered knobs, cylindrical plastic flow tubes for industrial or medical use, water bottles containing sports logos or bottles and jars used in the cosmetic industry.
For your flat or round plastic parts, we have both conventional and UV cured inks. For most standard plastics, such as (but not limited to) ABS, acrylic, HIPS, nylon, polycarbonate , polyethylene, polypropylene and polystyrene, we have full ink lines which allow us to mix PMS colors and custom colors in-house.
Is screen printing the right choice for my plastic part?
Even though we will do the research and legwork to find the best printing solution for your plastic product or part, pad printing may be the right solution for your project if:
- You need a large bold image.
- Your image needs to be printed on a round plastic object.
- The image can be printed with multiple passes, one for each color.
