Screen printed Stickers


Screen printing is a traditional print method which still remains very popular especially for printing window stickers and stickers which are used outdoors as they are more resilient to fading.

Screenprinting (also referred to as silk screen printing) is a process whereby every individual colour is printed separately by passing the ink through tiny holes in a mesh screen. For this reason it is possible to match pantone colours.

As each colour requires a screen it is more cost effective on larger volumes. Although it is used a lot when printing limited number of colours it is possible for full colour images to be printed using this method.

Screenprinted stickers can be printed single or double sided, enabling you to maximise promotional opportunities.

    Why would you choose to use screen printed stickers?

    Screenprinted stickers are produced by uv stable inks in pantone matched colours being squeezed through fine mesh on to the surface of the self adhesive vinyl stickers. The ink embeds itself in the material to produce a durable sticker.


    Who uses screen printed stickers?

    Whilst screenprinting is a traditional print method, it produces durable stickers printed in UV stable inks, which are still very popular especially with companies that use stickers outdoors.

    Screen printed stickers are often used on vehicles especially vans to highlight accreditation's and membership of trade associations. Other popular uses include large plant hire equipment, portable accommodation, Toilet hire, bumper stickers and generally within the automotive industry.


    What is screen printing?

    To answer this question we asked our team of highly experienced screen printers. Below is a basic overview of the production process involved in screen printing stickers:

  • Once all the artwork is approved for your sticker design our studio break the image into layers or colours
  • Each colour requires it's own screen to be produced. The studio produce a film for each of the individual colours.
  • The films have what is known as a positive image i.e. the image we want to appear on the screenprinted stickers at the end of the printing process.
  • Meanwhile in the workshop, the screen printing team flood coat a large mesh screen with a light sensitive emulsion.
  • Once the light sensitive emulsion is dried, the films (made by the studio) are overlaid on the screen and they are then exposed to UV light. The UV light then sets the emulsion where the film image didn't appear.
  • The screens are then washed, to remove any areas of emulsion that aren't set by the UV light, the result is a negative image on the screen.
  • Once this process has been repeated with all the films (i.e. all the colour layers required to screen print the stickers) the process of printing can begin.
  • The next stage is to push a single pantone colour matched UV stable ink through the mesh onto the self adhesive vinyl. The vinyl can be white or transparent.
  • When the ink reaches the vinyl the image has returned to being positive as it has gone through the negative image on the screen.
  • The vinyl with the single layer of ink is then dried and the process is repeated with each screen, to build up the colours and create the overall finished image.
  • Once printed with each colour / layer, the stickers are dried for the final time and taken to the finishing department for cutting to shape and packing ready to be delivered.

  • Are the stickers waterproof?

    Yes they are printed on vinyl so they are waterproof.


    Can the screenprinted stickers still be laminated?

    Yes the stickers can have a matt or gloss laminate applied once printed if required.


    Are there any size restrictions?

    We can print any size stickers right up to a massive 3 metre x 1 metre. If you have a sticker requirement over this size it would need to be printed in sections.


    Can screen printed stickers be cut to shape?

    Absolutely, just as with digital stickers you can have the stickers cut into any shape.


    Can screenprinted stickers match pantone colours?

    Absolutely the inks used in screenprinting can be pantone matched.


    Can screen printed stickers be printed on transparent vinyl?

    Yes screen printing can be done on a variety of materials, Window stickers are particularly popular on transparent vinyl.


    Can you add a backing white to screenprinted window stickers?

    Yes window stickers reverse printed onto transparent vinyl can have a flooded backing white over the image, alternatively we can offer custom shaped backing white which would leave an area of the sticker transparent.


    Can Stickers be screen printed with metallic colours?

    Yes we can include metallic colours when screen printing stickers, the most popular colours are gold or silver.


    Can you screen print day glo or fluorescent stickers?

    There are a few day glo colours that are popular on screenprinted products this includes; orange, yellow, pink and green.


    Is screen printing an expensive option for printing stickers?

    If you only wanted a few small stickers, it would be much more cost effective to digitally print your vinyl stickers. If you are looking for hundreds or thousands of stickers, or the stickers are medium to large in size with limited colours then screen printing can be a very cost effective way of producing your stickers.

    Call our team to discuss your requirements on 01347 823230 and they will advise the most cost effective way of printing your stickers using either our up to date digital print processes or traditional printing methods.


    Can reflective stickers be screenprinted?

    Yes we can screenprint reflective stickers. We would recommend limiting the number of colours used when screenprinting these stickers.

    What our customers say...

    • "We have been supplied quality Vinyl stickers by Screen Print and Display for at least 6 years. Our business started back in the early ‘00’s, and quite a number of other suppliers had been used until we tried Screen Print & Display. Since then we have not need to go anywhere else. Our stickers need to be tough, with a double lamination, and very adhesive, for submerge water use. We can highly recommend Screen Print & Display for quality products, customer service, and cost."
      Lance Mitchell
