Screen Printing Step by Step

What is Silkscreening?

Screen printing is a printing technique that pushes ink through a porous mesh screen stretched across a frame. The image that is printed is created by a stencil image that is fixed on the screen. The stencil image is created by applying a photo sensitive emulsion to a screen, placing a film positive on the emulsion, and exposing the emulsion to bright light. The screen is then pressure washed and the unexposed emulsion falls away, creating a negative image on the screen. The screen is then dried and carefully registered on a printing press. Heavy duty rubber squeegees are used to push ink through the negative areas of the screen onto a substrate (that might be a t-shirt, a sweatshirt, or a tote) to create the final imprint image. The item being printed then passes on a conveyor belt through an oven that cures the imprint ink.
