Screen printing is the process of using a frame stretched with woven mesh coated with an ink blocking emulsion. Open areas are created in the emulsion by “burning” the emulsion with UV light. A stencil positive is created of the design and used to block areas of the emulsion from receiving the UV light and those unburned areas are then washed out to expose open mesh in the screen. Ink is forced through these open areas of the screen with a squeegee and deposited onto a garment or other substrate. The print is then cured through a conveyor dryer.
