What is the best way to screen print on metal? Answered

I need to print different colors on my products I make.  I powder coat them but I want to screen print a lable on them.  I've tried using another color or coating with stencils and high heat tape, but it did not turn out well.  Any help would be much appreciated!


I'd go with Redes. I didn't know you could get "decal paper", but screenprinting one-sies and two-sies is a right royal PITA, the set up and clean down takes forever.

You could print decals on decal paper available online that will feed thru your printer then clear coat after application. Or to do real screen printing you could do just like you would if you were printing on a tee-shirt. Here's a good quick vid. on youtube that shows how it's done. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ee_8IMx0uMo .
