What is Screen Printing?

Screen printing made its first appearance in China during the Song Dynasty (960–1279 AD). Soon after, other Asian countries including Japan adopted the method and modified according to their unique cultural demands.

Western European nations learned of the art during in the late 18th century when traders began bringing the items to the west. However, the technique did not enter into use in Europe until silk mesh was more available from the east and profitable outlets appeared.

By the early 20th Century, several printers began experimenting with photo-reactive chemicals in printing. Roy Beck, Charles Peter and Edward Owens experimented and ultimately revolutionized the commercial screen printing industry. This was accomplished when they introduced photo-imaged stencils, though commercial success was not instant.

Commercial screen printing today uses sensitizers far safer and less toxic chemicals than in times past with better results.

The Silk Screen Printing Process

Printing by screen is very simple, though some processes today are more complex, allowing for finer designs.

The screen allows ink to pass through while a board of some sort spreads the ink evenly. The item below the stencil then receives the ink only where the stencil allows. 

Once the item has been inked, it can then dry. The result is exactly as the stencil permits. 

Of course, the simplest form of silk screen printing is a single color. But with modern methods, multiple colors can be added by screen printing to create beautiful designs such as the posters shown on this page.
