Screen printing is a process of using a stencil (screen mesh) to apply ink to a chosen media.

The screen mesh has closed and open areas, the open areas allow the transfer of ink onto the media.

A squeegee is used to force the ink through the openings in the mesh to create a sharp-edged image onto the substrate.

Screen printing is used to create fine art graphics when applied to paper, textile design most commonly used for t-shirts, as well as numerous industrial applications such as printed dashboard and panels for cars and white goods, electrical circuit boards, and more.
