What is Silk Screen Printing?

Silk Screening, also referred to as Screen Printing, is the most versatile method of printing because it's affordable and can be applied to myriad surfaces. Moreover, inks and materials used in silk screen printing are easily available. Therefore, silk screen printing can be used for corporate logos, designs or product warnings.

Silk screen printing today is widely used to create large batch produced graphics on metals, woods, glass, plastics and ceramics.

A silk screen is composed of a frame made of wood or aluminum and a screen made of silk. In the latter half of the 20th century, polyester was substituted for silk.

A stencil is created to mimic the design or logo that is intended to be printed on the selected surface. Areas of the silk screen that are not part of the design are blocked off with a non-permeable material creating a positive of the image or design.

To begin the silk screen printing process, the silk screen itself is placed atop the substrate - a piece of metal, glass, wood, plastic or ceramic. Ink is then placed on top of the silk screen, a fill bar then fills or floods the mesh openings in the silk screen.

With a slight amount of downward force, the operator pulls the fillbar to the front of the screen which fills the mesh openings with ink. The operator then employs a squeegee that moves the screen down to the substrate and it is then pushed toward the rear of the screen.

Through a capillary action, a prescribed and controlled amount of ink is transferred from the screen or mesh onto the substrate. If the silk screen is washed and cleaned properly, it can be re-used.
