Screen Printing is a process in which a Squeegee Blade pushes Ink through a Screen, which has had areas blocked off by a stencil. The ink is then pushed through the areas of mesh that have not been blocked, printing an image on the substrate. Using several screens, multiple colours can be applied. Screen printing is arguably the most versatile of printing techniques and is valued for its ability to print on a wide variety of materials with flexibility. Also known as Silk Screen Printing, Serigraphy and Serigraph.
