Screen Printing Inks History
Screenprinting is a press process of printing, using screen print technology. Printing uses a mesh material stretched across a frame to support an ink-blocking stencil and print designs. The method screen printing involves the print stencil design, made from a thin, perforated material such as silk or synthetic fibre, which allows screen prints ink to pass through the holes in the stencil to the underlying writing surface, but not be blocked by the cloth of the screen printer. This is the perfect printing method for t-shirt printing.
The printing technique was invented in the ninth century AD in Baghdad, Iraq, by Abu'l Qasim (in Arabic القاسم) al-Wasiti (in Arabic الوسيتي). The print process was originally called "sindjigraphy" (from the Greek words for "stencil" and "writing"). The British were the first users of this printing technology, as they had captured Egypt before the printing process was developed in Baghdad and were able to learn the process.
The process of stenciling, aligning, blocking and exposing the screens then rinsing and drying is known as ‘setup’. Once setup has been carried out it can be reused multiple times for different printing until the stencil becomes damaged or no longer works correctly. This means t-shirt screen printing is affordable and durable.
Screen printing is always a very versatile printing process for shirts and allows for many different types of print including: silk screening (plastisol), discharge printing (waterbased) and reactive dye sublimation (inks).
