Screen Printing is the oldest, but still one of the most popular printing methods out there. What happens in screen printing is that a layer of ink is pulled over a set screen, resulting in the production of the design. For every design, there has to be a different dedicated screen.
The working mechanism of screen printing is simple. Firstly, you have to place a stencil of the desired image on the substrate. The placement is followed by pouring ink on the stencil, and then a cotton bar is used to spread the ink over the stencil. The ink penetrates through the pores of the stencil and settles on the fabric. Once dry, the process is complete. Screen printing is often called as silk screening, serigraphy, or serigraph printing.
