Silk-Screening Your Logo/Graphics adds Value to Your Enclosure
Generally referred to as “silk-screening,” direct printing offers a colorful, professional and eye-catching way to make your Mier enclosure unique or to highlight your company logo.
Unlike a decal, a direct print logo adds value to your Mier enclosure because it’s permanent. It won’t peel or wear off. The quality of printing depends on people and equipment, and Mier has available some of the most experienced people and the best equipment in the direct printing business. Quality direct printing starts with the artwork, and the artist, who will set up your artwork is one of the best. He has more than 35 years of experience. He can take supplied artwork or create an image from a customer’s idea and produce a detailed film positive.
The printer and his staff also have a lot of experience. Their combined experience in the trade totals more than 50 years. As stated, equipment and material are also very important and Mier’s direct printer use the “Cadillacs” of the industry.
After a screen is created with the artwork, it is lined up with the enclosure and locked in place. Ink is poured on the screen and pressed through the image area on the screen. As the ink passes through the screen, your design is “printed” on the enclosure.
A different screen must be created and used for each color printed. Each color is screened separately with drying time in-between screening.
The experienced direct printer and his staff know how much tension and ink to apply to a screen. Such knowledge produces an image with sharp, well-defined edges and smooth, uniform color that appears on Mier metal enclosures.
