Screen printing is a process by which paint or ink is applied to a surface by pushing it through a mesh screen. Once made from silks, the screens are now more often made from synthetic materials (ours are polyester). The process is used to make multiple copies of the same image. A set of T-shirts for a group or team, of tote-bags for a fund-raiser, are typical sorts of projects.
The screen design can be achieved in various ways. We have materials to draw or paint an image directly on a screen, and the chemicals needed to do it photographically. The second method is a little bit more involved, and allows for more complex and fine-lined images.
We have screens, frames, squeegees and inks. There are many inks available, the ones we carry are intended for use on fabric, and can also be used on paper or cardboard. There is a starter set listed on this page, or they can be purchased separately. See Printing Inks. They can be brush-painted, rather than screen printed on, should you prefer.
