Screen Printing

Screen Printing

Screen Printing offers unmatched durability and flexibility while presenting images that are crisp, clear and colorful. The process involves laying down a thicker layer of ink coating which makes the product more resistant to the sun and other outdoor elements. It also survives the wear and tear that can be accumulated through cleaning agents and chemicals. This means that screen printed materials can thrive in challenging environments.

IMS provides you with a wide selection of color and material choices to help meet your objectives. We can screen print objects in:

  • Aluminum
  • Brass
  • Stainless steel
  • Vinyl
  • Polycarbonate
  • Lexan
  • Foil
  • And more!

Even after the printing process, we offer a variety of enhancements to make your product look its very best including embossing, adhesives, overlaminates, die-cutting, doming and pre-masks. We stock screens from 12 X 20 to 48 X 48 and specialize in close tolerance, 1 color or 10. And best of all? We can handle all of the ‘this can’t be done items’ including nameplates, panels, chassis, decals, labels, and lexan overlays!
