Screen printing or silkscreen painting is a printing method that renders a color image that requires a cutting edge porous fabric and stencils. This technique of creating prints came into vogue during the Pop Art movement of the 1960s. The uniqueness of this style is that it could be used any paint or ink and multiple colors can be applied after each layer dries.
The main equipment for screen printing consists of canvas stretched over a bolting the frame and this stencil is placed above the screen of silk, for support. The surface to be printed is placed on the back and colours are forced through the stencil on the surface. Different colors can be used with a variety of screen printing stencils on the surface in layers. As each layer of color must be dried before applying a new color scheme is a process that takes time.
The art of serigraphy is an ancient technique of creating works of art. Originated in the far East and original displays were created by seta absorbent quality. Was based on a Japanese form of stencils, used primarily on fabrics. In 1907, Samuel Simons took patents and modern screen printing was established on the basis of these patents. This was quickly adopted by John Pilsworth (1914) in California and his works relate to this day. These days, the screen printing method (although with polyester screens) is mainly used in fine arts and commercial printing on a small scale for printing banners and flags. With changing demands and technology, screen printing started to embed chart stencil.
Mostly screen templates are created by hand and you can have any shape that you need simply to cut plastic sheets and its application on the screen. Other methods include creating the desired image on the screen. Screen printing is done mainly for objects in ceramic, metal, glass, synthetic elements, clothing and other fabrics. It is particularly useful in large print graphic design and screen printing became more flexible, better alternative to traditional printing methods.
Although the screen-printing is often associated with clothing, is widely used for decals, watches, posters, displays and billboards. It became the preferred method of printing as the costs are low and can be used for printing on a variety of surfaces. Graphic screen printing is widely used to mass-produce posters and other display objects, decals for many industries at very low costs.
