How Screen Printing Works

Most of the T-shirts in the world are screen-printed. To be sure, there are other ways to produce printed apparel, including inkjet printers that apply images to garments. But screen printing, the process of using a squeegee to force ink through a screen stencil onto fabric, is the most efficient system the world has ever known for producing printed apparel. The process is age-old, and even with modern improvements, it still requires a basic, hands-on workflow. First, a screen (much like a window screen, but with finer, stronger mesh) is coated with a light-sensitive gel, called emulsion. Next, a black-and-white image on transparent paper or film is placed in front of the screen while very bright light shines through both. The film creates a shadow on the screen, exposing the emulsion to light in some places. The spots where the light reaches the emulsion harden and cure, but the parts behind the artwork film do not harden. After the screen is washed, the cured parts remain, leaving behind a stencil where the artwork was.Then, a rubber squeegee is used to push ink through the stencil onto the substrate, such as T-shirts, or paper or vinyl or metal, wood, and any number of other materials. Make sure the screens are lined up so that the colors land adjacent to one another correctly on the design. Make sure the squeegee pressure is enough to force the ink through the stencil.
