Screenprint

Screen printing is a stencil process, whereby the stencil is attached to a nylon mesh, and ink is pushed through with a rubber blade called a squeegee. The most common method of making the stencil at is to coat the screen with photo sensitive emulsion.

 

When this is dry, imagery that has been hand drawn, painted, or made photographically, can be exposed onto it using a UV exposure unit. The softened areas that have been protected by the image, can then be washed away, creating the matrix from which to print. Stencils can also be hand cut from paper and then attached to the screen

 

Artwork and designs can be printed in a wide range of colours and inks. Images can be printed onto almost anything that is flat, including paper, fabric, metal, wood, and plastic.
