Direct Screen Printing

Direct screen-printed nameplates are an affordable option most commonly used for light outdoor or indoor use. This process will generally last 3-5 years in the field, depending on the conditions and outdoor exposure variables (often much longer). Additionally, for extra-durability, a clear top-coat can be applied to metal materials.

The ink is printed directly on the surface of the material and can be done so in a wide variety of colors (single or multi-color), both stock and custom color matched inks are available. This process is also available to be printed on a wide variety of materials, allowing us to meet your specific needs.
