Screen printing equipment manufacturers share what mistakes the printing factory will make during the printing process and how to avoid pitfalls
Manufacturers of screen printing equipment tell you that printing disputes are the most unwilling but also the most frequently encountered problems in the process of communication between printing factories and customers. One of the reasons for the emergence of printing disputes may be that the printing quality of the finished products delivered by the printing factory is not up to standard, and there is another important reason, that is, objective printing errors. Due to the limit of the machinery itself, these errors are inevitable, not due to human factors, such as poor management, improper quality control, and other factors.

(1) Text errors in typesetting:
Typesetting is an important process before printing. To be precise, typesetting is text layout work performed by designers and producers using corresponding software under the client's instruction and request. Therefore, from the printing factory's point of view, customers are generally required to sign for confirmation before plate making and printing.

(2) Production and proofing errors:
After the design and production personnel complete the typesetting and production work, they enter the publishing process, which is what we usually call film proofing. Generally speaking, the output accuracy of the laser phototypesetting machine is within the range of 0.01 C 0.1 mm. At the same time, due to the different films used, will also lead to certain errors.
(3) Color error:
There are three kinds of color errors. The first is that there is a deviation between the printed matter and the color of the proof; the second is that the internal and external colors of the same batch of printed matter are inconsistent to a certain extent; the third is that there is a deviation between the printed product color in the printed matter and the actual color itself.
(4) Paper error:
Due to the problem of the papermaking process, the brightness, thickness, and texture of the same paper produced by different paper manufacturers will be different. The screen printing equipment manufacturer will give you an example. For example, three different coated papers of the same weight have different textures. Of course, the difference is not so great.

(5) Printing mechanical error:
The error of printing machinery is reflected in two points. One point is the problem of overprint accuracy, and the other point is the problem of ink color.
(6) Cutting size error: After the printing is completed, the next important link to enter is to use a paper cutter to cut the printed product. When cutting the finished product, due to the error of the cutter itself, the error after cutting the finished product also exists objectively. Screen printing equipment manufacturers tell you that for general printed matter, the size error of cutting is mostly 2mm up and down.

(7) Psychological expectation error:
To be precise, the psychological expectation error should not be included in the printing error category we are discussing.
