How does screen printing work?

by Audrey Lord

Screen printing is a very fascinating stencil printing technique. She has the potential to be super productive considering the possible reproduction. This process can be used to print on a variety of media, prints are most often made on paper, cardboard and canvas but it is also possible to print on any flat surface possible, such as wood, clothing, fabrics, and more. The popularity of this screen printing is largely due to Andy Warhol, who created many fine art prints directly through the screen printing process with few accessories. Screen printing is now often used on a large scale, mainly for textile printing. Textiles can be printed in small or large batches using manual or automated processes. As for the clothes at, the printing on clothes is all done by hand , and it's our dear friends from Studio Intik who take care of the production!

At the very beginning of (and even before that), I myself did DIY textile printing at home. At the base of the base, you need a stretched frame of silk, emulsion (which reacts to light to create the stencil), a UV source (it can even be the sun), a film of a black image for insolation, a sink, ink and a squeegee.

The real beauty in screen printing is all the possibilities! By superimposing passages of different colors, you can obtain magnificent results!
