Screen Printing

The screen printing process

The screen printing process is a printing technique whereby a mesh is used to transfer ink onto a substrate,
except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil. A blade or squeegee is moved across the screen to fill the open mesh apertures with ink, and a reverse stroke then causes the screen to touch the substrate momentarily along a line of contact. This causes the ink to wet the substrate and be pulled out of the mesh apertures as the screen springs back after the blade has passed. Each colour is laid down separately and requires a spate mesh screen for each colour in your graphic.
