What is Silk-Screening?

silk screen

We are sometime asked what Silk-Screening is and why used it.  Silk Screening is a process of printing using thick inks, squeegeed (pushed) through a mesh (screen) with a stencil style image which the ink fills and creates the image on a substrate below.  Original silk was used as the screen but polyester mesh or synthetic meshes are used today.  Silk-screening is is used mostly on apparel like graphic tee’s sold in retail stores and branded t-shirts for companies, sporting teams, etc.  It is also used on signs, posters, labels, tags, and other items need long-lasting requirements.   It produces a very opaque and durable print.  It can be used on apparel where embroidery is too expensive for the budget.
