With the ability to screen print almost every design or text onto any substrate or 3-dimensional object, the capabilities for today’s graphic printer appear to be limitless—but not without challenges. Every day, graphic printers are confronted with obstacles; matching corporate colors for POP prints or fleet graphics, printing tiny, 6-point text on lotion bottles, and creating flawless industrial interface panels for appliances, autos, keyboards, and switch overlays—applications where high quality prints are imperative!    

Emulsion selection and performance is a critical component for the success of every graphic application.
