A thin layer of high–quality enamel ink is applied directly to the base metal through a mesh screen containing the logo, thus eliminating the need to etch or stamp the design. Silk screening is also the ideal production method for hot–stamping or pad–stamping items requiring precise lettering or intricate art. Silk Screen is ideal for precision artwork such as the exact reproduction of logos and type that are too small or detailed to be color–filled through standard production methods. Silk screening also offers a wide variety of colors, allowing exact color matching. However, the cost of production is much higher because a separate plate must be used for each color.
