Printing method:

Screenprinting is a printing technique that uses a woven mesh, most commonly a polyester fabric, stretched tightly over a rectangular frame. Stencils are applied to the mesh with ink-blocking substances, either photo-emulsion or paper stencils. Each colour within the design requires its own stencil. The stencil creates an open area of mesh for ink to transfer through on to a smooth surface. A sharp edged squeegee is used to push ink through the mesh in a fluid movement or squeegee stroke.
