Screen printing is a form of printing that uses a stencil process. A fine mesh screen is coated with a photo emulsion and the design or image is then superimposed or negatively transferred onto the screen creating a stencil for ink to pass through.
Ink is then squeegeed over the screen forcing it through the openings of the stencil causing the design to be transferred onto the printing surface. Thus the entire process is commonly referred to as screen printing.
