Screen prints

Screen print or silk screen is a printing technique that uses a woven mesh to support an ink-blocking stencil of an image. A fill blade or squeegee is moved across the screen stencil, forcing or pumping ink into the mesh openings for transfer by capillary action during the squeegee stroke. Simply put, it is the process of using a stencil to apply ink onto another material whether it be t-shirts, posters, stickers, vinyl, wood, or any material that can keep the image onto its surface. A number of screens can be used to produce a multicolored image or design.
