A couple of weeks back, we announced the start of QLP’s spanking new informational video series, all about the different imprint processes that are used to decorate your promotional items.
Well, hold on to your hats, folks! Unless you want them screen printed, that is. That’s right: we’ve got the first in-depth video ready for your learning pleasure, and it’s all about the screen printing process!
If, like 99.999999% percent of the U.S. population, you’ve ever worn a t-shirt with a design printed on it, there’s a good chance that you’ve heard of screen printing. But what is it, exactly, and how is it done?
We know these questions have been keeping you up at night. Or, at the very least, you’ve wanted to know what goes into making any items you have screen printed. Don’t worry; we’ve got your answers right here. Take a look at our video explanation of the screen printing process!
There’s nothing like hearing the word “emulsion” to let you know that you’re really learning something. And who knew that when you apply sunblock to your skin, you’re kinda sorta screen printing yourself, just without the screen? Or the ink?
Screen printing is one of the most popular and commonly used decoration techniques, and now you know why. The process allows the ink to stick to any number of surfaces, making it versatile and easy to use. Plus, it looks cool, in the expert opinion of those here at QLP.
But that doesn’t mean that we’re neglecting all of the other amazing promo product imprinting processes. After all, what’s a video series with only one video in it? Well, it’s pretty much… a video. We’ve got lots more to show you, though, with videos about pad printing, embroidery, digital printing, heat press, and debossing still to come!
So keep your eyes right here on the Quality Logo Products® blog, or let your gaze wander over to our YouTube channel, where you’ll be able to find even more information on promo product printing. Let’s face it, you were probably on YouTube anyway; tune into the QLP channel, and you can at least say you were doing some promotional research the next time your boss catches you without your browser window minimized. Heyo!
Until next time!
