What’s difference between offset printing and screen printing?

First, the process is different

Offset printing is a kind of flat printing technology, the use of printing plate bump and height to achieve the effect of printing images, with the advantages of fast printing speed, high image quality, suitable for mass printing. Screen printing is a kind of mesh printing technology, through the holes of the mesh plate to control the flow of ink, can print a variety of shapes of patterns, suitable for printing curved, convex and uneven items.

Two, printing materials are different

Offset printing materials usually include printing plates, printing inks, printing paper, etc. The printing plate uses aluminum plate or chrome plate coated with photosensitive adhesive, and the printing ink uses water-based ink or oil-based ink. Screen printing materials include mesh plates, inks, gauze and printing items, inks can be screen ink, UV ink and so on.

Three, printing effect is different

Offset printing technology is suitable for mass printing, the printing effect is more delicate, the image clarity is high, suitable for printing pictures and text. However, for items with more curved or convex surfaces, the printing effect of offset technology is not as good as screen printing technology. Screen printing can use the characteristics of the mesh plate to print on a non-flat or convex surface, while its printing effect has a heavy sense, suitable for printing logos, trademarks and brightly colored patterns.

Different applications

Offset printing technology is widely used in the printing of books, magazines, posters, business cards and other flat prints. Screen printing technology is widely used in printing plastic products, glass products, metal products, electronic products and other non-flat printed matter. Screen printing technology is also widely used in printing T-shirts, ribbon and other textiles.

Conclusion

In general, offset printing technology and screen printing technology have their own scope of application, and the choice should be determined according to actual needs. For the need to print large quantities of flat prints, offset printing technology may be more suitable; For occasions where items of different shapes and materials need to be printed, screen printing technology is more suitable. If you need to print bright colors, fine dot products, and have high cost requirements, offset printing is a better choice. If you need to print monochrome or simple graphics, text, and have high requirements for the thickness and color concentration of the ink, screen printing is more suitable.
