This is the most popular and efficient method of finishing writing instruments by printing on the barrel. The image to be printed will be generated from the artwork and then applied to the screen using a photochemical process. In this process, only the areas of printing are permeable to ink, causing images to appear on the print substrate by means of a pressing process.

With screen printing it is possible to achieve multi-colour and all-round prints, which makes optimum use of the promotional surface of the ballpoint pen. This means, that line as well as grid templates can be implemented. Please contact our experts if you require further detailed information.

Printing specifications

If you supply a screen print film, please make sure that the registration marks are correct and that you have set the film to 1:1. If the sent-in films are not structured accordingly, we must correct them. This will incur an additional fee.

When printing on objects, we need exact details of the print colours (see list of our standard print colours below).

For some coloured, transparent and frosted writing instruments, we recommend a preprint with a white background (i.e. an additional colour first) to ensure the best printing results.
