Depending on the application, we can print as small as 2-point font or graphics as big as 48 x 96 inches. We have the latest software and programs that exceed those of other digital printing houses. Our team can also help you select the best presses, ink, cure systems, primers, and coatings for your specific application.

Screen Printing or Digital Printing?
Deciding between screen printing and digital printing—especially for producing nameplates—can be a challenge. Not sure which to choose? Consider the necessary quantity, the desired end-use of the product, its environment, and the surface to which the product will be applied. Other important aspects include the colors required to achieve a certain aesthetic as well as the complexity of the design. These factors determine the best materials, ink, and printing process to use.
When printing on metal substrates, Specialty Printing & Processing offers single color and multicolor digital or screen printing. Multicolor printing requires individual passes for each color. Digital printing is less labor-intensive and quicker for short production runs, but it has limitations spot color matching while screen printing has better suited for low-volume work.
If you’re not sure which printing process is right for your project, contact us for help. We can weigh your requirements to determine the best fit.
