Screen Printing

Screen printing is the most common method for T-shirt printing. Screen printing is a process by which ink is pushed through a screen onto a printing surface. Screens are now made of polyester instead of silk and stretched over a wood or metal frame. The screen is coated with an emulsion in order to be able to allow a stencil to be created on the screen using a film positive and a light exposure unit. One screen is used for each color that is printed. Once all screens are “burned”, they are placed on a screen printing press, making sure each one lines up correctly in order to produce the image correctly. Ink is then placed in the screens. A squeegee is used to pull the ink across the screen, which forces the ink through the screen onto the printing surface. Once all the colors have been printed, the garment is run through a dryer in order for the ink to properly dry or cure.
