WHAT IS SILKSCREEN PRINTING?

 

 

Silkscreen printing is a form of stencil printing, in which fabric (originally silk) is stretched across a frame to make a screen. The screen is blocked out using a stencil. The stencil is created either by hand or photographically.

 

The stencil's open areas let the ink pass through the screen onto a sheet of paper. A squeegee is used to push the ink through the open parts of the stencil. A different stencil is required for every colour in the image. Each colour must be carefully registered with all the other colours. ​

SILKSCREEN ENHANCEMENTS

 

 

Silkscreen printing can also be used to enhance digital prints by adding spot colours, gold, silver, fluorescents or Diamond Dust. We believe a print should be so much more than an exact copy of an original artwork and encourage artists and publishers to work with us and bring the most of out the print they are producing.
