What is Screen Printing?

Home _ Blog

Screen printing is a method of printing that uses a stencil to apply ink to the shirt. The stencil is made from a fine mesh material, which allows for the application of ink to specific areas on your shirt. It’s called “screen” because it resembles an old-fashioned window screen with holes in it (the stencil). The process involves laying down an image on top of your shirt using this stencil, then applying pressure through rollers or squeegees to transfer the image onto your garment.

Advantages of Screen Printing

Screen printing is a process where ink is transferred from a screen to a substrate. This can be done with a variety of methods, including silk screening and serigraphy. The benefit of screen printing over other methods is its durability; because the image is created on the fabric itself instead of being printed on top of it like in other processes, there’s no chance that the design will fade or peel off over time.

Screen printing also allows you to create highly detailed designs that would be difficult or impossible to achieve with other methods. For example: if you wanted an image containing fine details such as hair strands or wrinkles around eyes (which would normally require expensive digital scanning), then this can easily be achieved using this technique

Finally – cost effectiveness! Screen printing allows businesses who may not have access to expensive equipment (such as embroidery machines) still get great results at low costs – perfect for anyone looking for quality t-shirts without breaking their budget!
