So...how does it work?

screen printing tutorial

This illustration shows the basic set up of a screen print in process. The following is a very simple explanation of a craft that takes training, talent and hard work...don't try this at home!

The image is burned to a positive film, the photo-emulsion is laid down, but through chemical and light processing, the emulsion "disappears" from the image that is going to print. The rest of the emulsion is left, which the ink can't penetrate. Said ink is applied, a squeegee is run over the screen, forcing the ink to the shirt, balloon, notebook (you get the idea), and the logo appears "magically" on the piece. For multiple ink colors, a separate set up like this has to exist. Thus, the need for a "carnival ride"! It allows a shirt to go to each "station" to get the ink it requires, rather than stopping after the red is applied, cleaning and setting up for the blue, realigning the shirt, then doing the same for the green, yellow and white.

How Screen Printing Works for Your Business

Screen printing is more versatile than traditional printing techniques. The surface does not have to be printed under pressure, the way etching or lithography has to, and it doesn't have to be smooth and flat, like paper. Different inks can be used to work with a variety of materials, like cloth, ceramics, wood, paper, glass, metal, and plastic.
