Screen Printing on Metal Parts

Did you know that not only can you screen print on shirts and pretty much any article of clothing but you can also screen print on metal parts? You read that right, any basic screen printing company can screen print on metals parts just by following a couple basic steps. For the best results you are going to want to use a light-colored flat surface. Next you are going to want to make sure that the metal parts you are screen printing are clean and dry for the screen printing process to work. To remove the particles and any discoloration scrub the metal parts with a rough end of a sponge. Also to remove all grease or adhesive, rub the metal parts with rubbing alcohol. Adding a layer of polyurethane with a sponge brush to the metal parts will prevent any and all rusting. Polyurethane also seals the metal surfaces but you must let it dry completely before printing on it.
