Screen Printing

Screen printing is a printing technique that uses a mesh to support an ink-blocking stencil. The stencil is placed over the screen, and ink is forced through the screen onto the substrate, leaving a visible image on the substrate.

The process of screen printing is also known as silk-screening because a fine fabric mesh is traditionally used as the substrate onto which the ink is forced. The popularity of screen printing grew in the early 1960s because of its ability to produce high volumes of prints at low costs.
