Screen printing is an artistic method to transfer unique designs onto various materials like fabric, paper, or glass. It’s a popular choice for creating customized T-shirts, posters, and other items, and here’s how it works, simplified for you:
First, an original design is made into layers in our art program. Then, it’s transferred directly to a screen coated with a unique emulsion that hardens when exposed to light, leaving a stencil of your image.
Next, the screen is placed over the material you want to print. Ink is spread over the screen, and a squeegee pushes the ink through the mesh, applying the design onto the surface beneath. Only the parts of the screen without the hardened substance allow ink to pass through, making your design appear on the material.
Stand out From the Rest
What makes screen printing stand out is its ability to produce vibrant, lasting colors on various surfaces. It’s a hands-on process that gives each print a unique, personal touch. While it takes skill and practice, the result is a unique piece crafted with care.
This printing method is an excellent option for businesses, artists, and individuals. It’s cost-effective for large quantities, offering endless creative possibilities for those who use it.
