Screenprint is a printing technique that uses a woven mesh to support an ink blocking stencil. The attached stencils forms open areas of mesh that transfer ink as a sharp edged image onto a substrate (i.e. base material e.g. paper, fabric etc.) A squeegee is moved across the screen stencil forcing ink through the open areas of the mesh and onto your material.
