Custom-made backpacks have become favored by many companies and are generally presented as gifts to employees and customers. Due to the practicality of backpacks, customized backpacks are also popular among end users. Speaking of customization, of course, the most indispensable thing is the corporate logo. Generally, the most frequently used logo production situation is silk printing. As a professional manufacturer of backpacks, Animal Husbandry Co., Ltd. has customized backpacks of various styles for many companies in the past 8 years. In the customization process, it has gone from being at a loss to the current mature and sophisticated. Let alone other, we will do it today. Talk about the silk screen in the process of custom-made backpacks.
Maybe many colleagues sneered at the question we are going to talk about today. The silk screen is as simple as that. Is it necessary to make a fuss? What we want to say here is that many things seem simple, and you can only do simple effects. It is not a simple matter to explore the use of crafts at a deeper level.
Let’s start with the silk screen process today. If we want to do silk screen printing on the backpack, first we have to make a source file that can be screened, usually a cdr or AI file. After we have the file, we need to screen and make a screen. Board, if this is done, even if the preliminary work of the backpack silk screen is completed, the next step is the official silk screen.
First of all, we need to see how many colors the logo has. How to register is more convenient, that is, what color is screen-printed first and then what color is screen-printed. This should be reflected on the screen. Before doing this work, there is one thing that must be done, and that is to base the silk screen area. Why do you want to base it? We know that the surface of the cloth has textures. The principle of silk screen printing is to evenly leak the ink on the plane. Obviously, it is inconvenient to have textures, so it needs to be primed first. For this, we generally use transparent ink for primer.
When it comes to this, there is a problem that arises, and that is the problem of ink primer. This is the basis of the silk screen effect. If you want a good silk screen effect, the primer is very important. We mentioned earlier that the surface of the fabric is For the pattern, the function of the primer is to cover the texture and make the surface of the fabric more smooth. Therefore, it is necessary to print twice more when making the primer. Generally, the primer silk screen three times is a good effect. The lines are covered. In addition to making the silk screen more beautiful, the benefits of this can also make the effect of the silk screen more layered and three-dimensional.
After the primer is completed, it is color silk screen printing. When color silk screen printing, we must first think about the steps of color registration, otherwise there is no way to carry out the following work. These are relatively simple silk screens. One screen printing effect is more difficult, that is, gradient screen printing.
What is gradient screen printing? It is to achieve the color gradient of the silk screen area. This kind of silk screen printing is the most difficult. We all know that the color gradient is from dark to light, from light to dark, but there is no way to achieve this with silk screen ink, which requires silk screen printing. The master has a deep foundation, and can well grasp the strength of the squeegee in the hand when screen printing, so that the ink can penetrate well.
Of course, it is impossible to achieve a gradual effect 100%. There is definitely a gap between silk printing and digital printing.
