Project Description

A printing technique particularly suited for flat surfaces. The heart of the process involves a screen that is tightly stretched around a rigid frame. The areas that are not to be printed are masked out on the screen, preventing ink from passing through. The unmasked areas allow the ink to be imprinted on the material. The final step is to send the item on a conveyor belt through a heat-tunnel. This curing process ensures that the inks dry quickly so that the materials can be stacked or packaged. If more colors are desired in the final design, the process is repeated with different screens.
