By using screen printing we can print on material of all sorts. The process involves squeezing ink through mesh screens.
The screens have a design with a stencil that blocks the ink from transferring onto the clothing. By moving a squeegee across the screen, the ink fills the open areas of the mesh. A reverse stroke then causes the screen to touch the clothing momentarily, causing the ink to wet the surface leaving a design.
Only one color is printed at a time. To produce a multi-colored image, several screens are used.
