Printing On Grafix Plastics Products
What type of printing can be done on Grafix's stock films?
Nearly all of our stock plastic films can be screen printed. However, to accept any other type of printing (such as Ink jet or Laser printing) the film must be specially coated to accept the ink. Some of Grafix Plastics films such as Acetate, DuraLar or ClearLay PVC can be offset printed under the right conditions, with the right inks. Please contact us with your requirements if you need additional guidance.
The meanings of these generic terms can vary from industry
to industry. An example of this situation is use of the name
“Mylar®.” Mylar® is a the registered trademark owned
by the I.E. Dupont Corporation for Bi-Axially Oriented Polyester
Film. There are dozens of different types and grades of Mylar®,
however the term is generically used to describe a range of
different films. For example people who work in the Architecture,
or Engineering fields usually use the term Mylar® when
discussing matte drafting film, which is a translucent base
polyester film with a matte coating that can be drawn on with
pen & ink. People who work in Graphic Arts, Printing, or Document
Archiving areas tend to use the term Mylar® to refer to
Clear Polyester Film.
