For hobby and learning purposes, I do some PCBs at home, using photo-resist positive development (mainly just single/double layer).
Obviously, I realized that most professional PCBs have silkscreen labeling, so I started to read a bit about it. I've mainly seen 3 processes:
- PCB printers/CNC: That seems to be the easiest, but it's quite expensive to get.
- Silk printing: Seems very time-demanding, as to generate the "silk" screen would take long time for a single usage.
- Ink transfer: Not sure about it, or how it works.
So my question is: What process is adapted for home-made PCB silk-printing? Is that even something usual? Where to get some further info about it?
