SCREEN PRINTING

MINIMUM: 12 PIECES PER SCREEN

Also known as silk screen screen printing is a technique where ink is pushed through a mesh screen onto a substrate to create images. Each screen begins clear, kind of like a screen door at your home.

A light sensitive coating is then applied on both sides creating a stencil like surface where ink won't push through. Then a positive is burned onto the screen ridding where the image is leaving a negative in the screen where ink will push through. This process is printed 1 color at a time.

Below you'll find an illustration on how it works so you can get a better idea.

Screen printing is a tedious and extensive process. The setup of a screen can sometimes take days. For this reason, we require a minimum of 12 pieces per screen. For example, for the illustration above, the minimum would be 36 pieces.
