Silk Screen Printing
Silk-screen printing is a very simple but effective printing process for both monochrome and multi-coloured prints. A stencil process in which coloring matter is forced onto the material to be printed through the meshes of a silk or organdy screen so prepared as to have previous printing areas and impervious non printing areas. Screen Printing is a time-tested stencilling technique used to apply inked images to a wide variety of substrates. Using a stencil, or a series of stencils, the ink is distributed to the desired area(s) by being pressed through a porous screen, hence the name Screen Printing also known as silkscreen, serigraphy, or serigraph printing, Screen Printing can be performed as a manual or automated process. In addition, since the process does not require the use of special printing machines, it can be print both vertically and horizontally.

How it Works
preparing the design
Each design must be used to separate the design screen. An individual design should be separated for the multi coloured design to put in ink colour.
Creating The Screens
The printer will choose a mesh screen to suit the complexity of the design, and the texture of the fabric being printed. Silkscreens are utilised to create a design at the top of a specially coated screen. The coating is light sensitive and a photo-negative of the design will be coated on the screen.
Etching The Images and dry
Then, We are using a squeegee to push the ink through the target to engrave the images complex and each ink will have to be dried before the additional colour can be applied.
Dry & Repeat
At the end of the process, each ink will have to be dried before the additional colour can be applied.
