Screen Printing


Screen printing is a popular printing technique where a mesh screen is used to transfer ink onto a substrate, except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil.

One colour is printed at a time, so several screens can be used to produce a multicoloured image or design.

Known for its versatility, it can be used on a wide range of surfaces, including textiles, ceramics, wood, paper, glass, and metal.
