Traditional screen printing on silk fabric
Biddle Sawyer Silks, leading silk printers in the UK.
Silk screen printing at Biddle Sawyer Silks
Silk screen printing is part of our heritage here at Biddle Sawyer Silks. We have been offering screen and rotary printing as one of our core services for over 50 years and we produce approximately 60,000 metres of silk every year.
We own a printing mill in Macclesfield which is equipped with 6 dedicated printing tables, so we know exactly what we’re doing when it comes to what our customers expect.
What is screen printing?
Screen printing is a more traditional method of producing printed silks, compared to digital printing. There is much more involved in the process behind silk screen printing fabric, which requires a high level of skill and expertise to be executed correctly.
Taking the inkjet printer out of the equation, screen printing essentially requires everything to be set up by hand in order to create the screen (stencils) ready for print.
While it’s a much slower and more meticulous way of printing, screen printing on silk is a process that produces the most elegant of results. The vibrant colour output of screen printing makes it the perfect technique for those looking to print bright, bold designs on to darker coloured fabrics.
How we screen print on silk
Due to the high precision production of screen printing, we can only offer traditional screen and rotary printing to clients who can commit to slightly larger order quantities (minimum order 200m/colour).
