SCREEN PRINTING is the process of decorating a material with a stenciled design by forcing ink through a mesh screen, transferring the design from the screen onto the material. Traditionally the design stencils were hand cut or painted, now a days the screens are coated with a photo emulsion which creates a negative image from the design transparency when exposed to UV light. The term "silk-screening" comes from the silk mesh that was originally used on the screens, but today's screens use a polyester mesh on a wooden or aluminum frame. Each color is printed one-at-a-time from a separate screen, either by a person holding a squeegee in the case of a manual printing press, or by a machine which pulls the squeegee in the case of an automatic printing press.

Pricing is based on the number of colors in your design. Printing on dark colored items is more expensive because it requires a white base coat in most cases.

The size of the design doesn't effect the cost, so it's an economical choice for large designs like you find on t-shirts and jackets. Fine detail and small letters are no problem and 4 color process printing gives the illusion of a full color photo.

Designs with 4 or more colors can get expensive, especially on dark colored garments. You can't screen print on polar fleece, knit caps, 6 panel caps or most towels.
