Screen printers generally choose between water-based ink or plastisol ink when screen printing.

A stencil is created on top of a fine mesh screen, leaving open the areas where color is intended to go.

The mesh stencil is placed on top of the printing surface, and ink is applied with a large squeegee.

Ink passes through the mesh areas of the stencil and onto the surface below. Explore the evolution of printing.

Large manufacturers screen print in large quantity, but a growing number of artisans are creating beautiful works of art with the same process.
