    Hello,

    I need to get some plastic enclosures screen-printed and was wondering if
    anyone here had some experience of a screen printing company which they could
    recommend in the UK especially in the South East. Or is there a screen printing
    newsgroup? (I can't find one)

    Thanks for any help.

  2. I read in sci.electronics.design that DesignElect <>
    They are still working out how to post articles by printing them on
    their screens.

    look in yellow pages for "silk screen printers"
    there should be quite a few in the south-east
    I remember using one near Heahrow, quite
    good with reasonable prices.

    I remember using one near Heahrow, quite
    Thanks. In the end, I've found a small company in Heathfield who don't mind
    doing small plastic boxes. It seems like the larger companies aren't very
    interested in the sort of job I need doing.

    I'm in the UK and looking into have some done too (quantity 50). Just
    wondering what the approximate cost was, if you don't mind me asking? I
    guess the number of sides to be printed affects the price?

    Thanks,

    Jim

    I'm in the UK and looking into have some done too (quantity 50). Just
    For a single colour design on a single side of a flat box which sits flat in
    the printing equipment, I would expect to pay something like £120 to £200 +vat
    for your quantity. If they need to make a jig for it to fit in the screen
    printer, it could cost a lot more.... there is also the alternative of stamp
    (sometimes called tampo) printing.
