Hello reader how are you i hope you all are awsome so here in this blog i posted the Methods of printing included old to new methods like xylography serigraphy and flexography details and when its started .
Oldest Methods of printing xylography
Hello guys today I will talk about an old Methods of printing xylography
have you ever think in old times the prinitng is on demand and
how they engrave the pictures and text
into the stones and wooden block
where was printing process is started
we don’t know about it but in the
book and other sources we find that the

An old methods of printing xylography
xylography also known as wood block printing
wooden block also generally
known as stencil and stamp
we know that the stamp and stencil are use to print
company logo and date on paper or documents signatures
everyone knows the importance of government
stamps without it no one can do important
and legal work

if you want to print multiple
color then you use multiple block
Some other methods are
Rubbing :- Rubbing is method used by europeans.
They put it onto the top of fabric
and paper. They press the block by hammer
or hand and simply rub it to engrave
or print the image
Printing press :- A modern method of print several surfaces.
It is quick and advance method of printing in
widely range, it was started in
china and now a day its use by all of country
color block printing :-Its a method to print three color beautiful pictures
the first picture was the diamond sutra in 1314 centuary
Do you know ?
xylography is not appear as print in english until 1816
but it is oldest method linked to the oldest practices
the oldest known printed works founds in
china and japan they were made by xylography,
A method of carving wood and
dipped into the ink and applied to paper.
This method of wood-block printing
appeared in Europe in the 14th century
, and eventually inspired
Johannes Gutenberg to create individual and
reusable pieces of type out of metal.
These days, can also describe the technique of
engraving wood for purely artistic purposes.
xylography advantages and disadvantages
English speakers picked up the word from French,
where it was formed as a combination of
xyl-, meaning “wood,” and -graphie, which denotes
writing in a specified manner.
you can use different shape of wood
block according to your design
its like a stencil you can print by different shape of wood block
यह आपके आइटम में एक सरल भी पेचीदा प्रभाव जोड़ सकता है।
यह आपके आइटम में पाठ, पैटर्न या छवियों को
स्थानांतरित करने का एक सरल तरीका है।
लकड़ी पर पैटर्न की नक्काशी मुश्किल हो सकती है, क्योंकि
इसके लिए बहुत सारे कौशल और एक स्थिर हाथ की आवश्यकता होती है!
यह पेंट के उपयोग के साथ बेहद गन्दा हो सकता है!
The second methods of printing
Screen Printing / Serigraphy the methods of printing
what is screen method
when its was started and what its use for
screen printing : is a life line of printing business because its changes the whole method of printing
serigraphy/ screen printing
It is method of print where transfer colour to a textile by using silk screen
First design your idea onto a paper and cut your design by a sharp tool
its like stencil
After that put your design on a silk screen
what is silk screen ?
silk screen is a frame which is made up with fine silk cloth and framed by a wooden or metal blocks
after your design is ready simply put on to the screen .
Now take your desire cloth or textile where you want to print
be sure your design tightly pasted on screen
and remember don’t use glue
now put screen onto the cloth or fabric
and apply a textile paint or colour on it
sqeeze with a squeezing tool
Screen Printing / Serigraphy
forward and backward gently
your design will be applied on your fabric
where it is start
Its started in 1439 by German inventor johannes gutenberg.
At the end of 15th century, It is famous to the 270 cities in
Europe It started an event known as the printing revolution.
Its spreaded all across the world
this gave people the ability to rapidly circulate information and ideas.
The invention of the printing press decrease the cost of printing
The printing press estimated did 20 million copies between 1455 and 1500 century
The design of Gutenberg style printing presses were able to output
around 240 pages per hour.
The mechanics will remain same during industrial revolution
They do only two modification and its change the history of printing
The first one was the use of steam power instead of physical manpower.
and the second modification was the use of a rotating cylinders instead of a flatbed.
The new advance screen printing machine
The modern technology of serigraphy
Screen printing can be a task and requires a bit of manual effort.
How it is possible, if you are a medium or large scale screen printer, you cannot afford
to have a manual process under your roof.
You need to automate this process.
You need a way to print thousands of screen-printed machines at a time.
so in the market variety of automatic machine are available
Day by day our technology is growing so the machines also grow huged .
The work is also get easy
i hope you guys get the knowledge about the Serigraphy
Modern method of printing
Hello guys today i am going to tell about Methods of Printing Flexography
Flexography also called flexo a method of
printing process which utilize a plastic plate.
It is a advance version of
letterpress, which can be print
any material like plastic films paper and cellophane
it used to print on non porous substances
used for various type of food packing material
In this method a high speed rotary are evolved
When it was started Method of Printing Flexography
Flexography was started in 1890 built
by bibby baron and sons
They are lived in Liverpool,England
The device is known as bibby’s folly and ink was water base which was smeared easily
After that Europeans using the rubber plate and flexography method of printing
oil based ink on printing press that
time new printing process
was called aniline printing .
In, 1920 the most of machines
were built in Germany
called Gummidrucks or Rubber printing
After that its used to print on
food packing material in USA
Flexography where it use and function
Advance method of printing
also know as lithography
where wider range of ink uses.
oil based ink is better then the water based ink.
It can be print on different type pf material like
plastic sheets foil brown paper
or any packing material
The product used to print is mostly
Flexible shopping bags and food packing,
flexible packaging including retail
and shopping bags,
food and hygiene bags and sacks
, milk and beverage cartons,
flexible plastics, self-adhesive labels,
disposable cup and containers ,
In the day now it move towards the laminate
it a process where two material bond together
Newspaper were also print by lithography
It use fast dry ink which have the good
result, faster production,
which results in lower costs.
printing speed is 750 meter per minute
which is possible by modern machines
Flexo printing is commonly used in
Large scale industry
where it print large roll of material
What is advantages
Why we use this method of printing process
It runs in very high speed print
speed is more then 750 sq meter per minute
it can print on variety of materials
requires low cost maintenance
high durability with best perfomance
low cost on prints
ideal for long term use
its handle printing, laminating, varnishing
in single pass
What it is disadvantages
The cost were so high but if you care properly
it can give us million of outputs
It is complex machine
a large amount of waste material produce
its hard to repair
so guys i hope my blog is informative
for more click this
This method is very good for industry work because its fast
you give better product to your customers
Thousand of materials prints in one time
