Equipment needed: Screens, Press, Exposure unit, dryer

Screen printing is the most popular and widely used printing process for beautiful t-shirts, especially when you are printing in bulk. It involves using screens to apply ink to the t-shirts. The resulting artwork is of very high quality and can last a long time. It is very cost-effective as well when used effectively. In this process, ink is applied to the t-shirt directly through mesh screens.

Screening Printing Process goes like this – A screen made of a finely woven fabric called mesh is stretched over a wooden or aluminum frame. This Mesh Screen is pressed up against cloth to place paint onto t-shirts one color per screen.
