*Bigger pattern is printable. But the cost is
higher.
*For small/thin pattern,
pad-print is more suitable than screen-print.
*It has relatively less restriction for
screen-print. 100-200 cm pattern is printable.
*Screen print is suitable for bigger
printed pattern.
Pattern Thickness Thinner. The thickness of the printed pattern
is less than 0.01mm
Thicker. The thickness can be controlled
by screen’s thickness and hardness of
the squeegee.

and is specially suitable for multicolor printing.
Ink-cup print is applicable which seals the ink to keep it clean. It is stable and environmental friendly.
