Screen Printing

What is screen printing?


Screen printing, silk screening, or serigraphy is a printmaking technique that creates a sharp-edged image using a stencil. A screen print or serigraph is an image created using this technique. A screen is made of a piece of porous, finely woven fabric (originally silk, but typically made of polyester since the 1940s) stretched over a frame of aluminum or wood. Areas of the screen are blocked off with a non-permeable material to form a stencil, which is a positive of the image to be printed; that is, the open spaces are where the ink will appear. Ink is then pushed through the open spaces with a squeegee and onto the garment. The garments are then heat dried, inspected, counted, folded and packaged. Signet uses automatic and manual screen printing equipment. The Manual presses handle the lower volume jobs with 1 to 6 colors involved in the design whereas the Automatic Presses run up to 8 colors and can produce 800 shirts an hour.

What type of ink do you use in screen printing?


Plastisol – the most common plastisol based print used in garment decoration. Good color opacity onto dark garments and clear graphic detail with, as the name suggests, a more plasticized texture. This print can be made softer with special additives or heavier by adding extra layers of ink. Glitter/Shimmer – silver flakes are suspended in a plastisol ink to create this sparkle effect. Usually available in gold or silver but can be mixed to make most colors. Metallic – similar to glitter, but smaller particles suspended in the ink. Nylobond – a special ink additive for printing onto technical or waterproof fabrics.
