How Does screenprinting Work?
Screen printing is a printing technique that uses a woven mesh to support an ink-blocking stencil. The attached stencil forms open areas of mesh that transfer ink or other printable materials which can be pressed through the mesh as a sharp-edged image onto a substrate. A fill blade or squegee is moved across the screen stencil, forcing or pumping ink into the mesh openings for transfer by capillary action during the squeegee stroke. This is by far the most common method of printing garments and is especially suitable for larger quantities (over 25).
More than just shirts. Many people think screenprinting is limited to shirts only - this couldnt be more false! Heres the lowdown on what can be printed - tote bags/purses, jackets, mouse pads, flags, banners, signs, bandanas, and more.
