Silk Fabric Printing

Silk Fabric Printing Methods:
We can offer you four different printing methods:
Flat screen printing
Printed fabric is transported to the screen through wide rubber bands rather than on a long table. In the process, the fabric is moved under the mesh, and then stops. The scraper is scratched on the screen. After the scratch, the fabric continues to move under the next mesh frame, and the production speed is about 500 yards per hour. Automatic screen printing can only be used for the entire volume of fabric, cut pieces generally do not use this method of printing.
Rotary screen printing
The silk fabric is transported under the circular mesh cylinder in continuous movement through the wide rubber belt. The advantage is the continuous process. The printing speed is greater than 3500 yards per hour. The drawback is that there are certain requirements for color matching and pattern size. Rotary screen printing is usually no more than 15 color sets, usually the maximum cylinder circumference is about 36-40 inches, so the maximum pattern size is no more than 36-40 inches.
Hand screen printing
Lay the silk on the flat surface of the table with a little adhesive in advance. Then the printer moves the mesh frame continuously by hand along the entire panel, printing one frame at a time until the fabric is finished. Each frame corresponds to a printing pattern. Production speed is 50-90 yards per hour. It is also widely used in the production of cut pieces and silk scarves. In the piece printing project, the garment making process and the printing process are arranged together. The pieces are printed on a piece of custom or unique pattern before they are sewn together.
Digital printing
Simply,  through a variety of digital ways such as: digital photos, images, computer scanning, processing a variety of digital design input computer, after processing by computer color printing system, by the special RIP software through the sprayed printed system will be special fuel spray directly onto the silk fabrics, and then after processing, to gain the required in all kinds of textile fabrics printing products of various kinds of high precision. Advantages are low MOQ, low defective rate and fast sample making. The drawback is higher unit price, color fullness, clarity and permeability are relatively poor.

How to choose the printing method?
We need to take your design pattern and order quantity into consideration. You may contact us for choosing the most suitable printing method.

All the off-white fabrics are prepared for dyeing process, we name such fabrics PFD (prepared for dyeing). Correspondingly, there is also PFP on the market, which means fabrics prepared for printing. As you may have already known, dyeing process places much higher requirements on the materials than printing process. In another words, PFD are in better quality than PFP.

Since we are a professional supplier of silk fabrics for more than two decades. At us, we can control the original silk fabric better. We always use PFD even for printing process and finished prints turn out to be more satisfying because much better raw material is used. You can rest assured of the quality of your product. Any further questions, please feel free to contact us.
