Screen Savers

Masking is used throughout the silk screen industry to extend the life of relatively expensive silk screens. In other print houses the area around the image is taped off under the screen using Mylar tape to avoid ink bleed through pin holes left during the exposure process, this stops the build up of deposits of ink below the screen which would otherwise eventually burst the screen. Some printers also mask off the top surface to reduce the wear on the screen from the action of the squeegee blade.

Because of the repeatable nature of CD/DVD printing (i.e. the same shape, printing onto the same substrate every time), we can produce a ready made mask, that is easier to apply and cheaper than tape.
