1  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Screen Printing: Discussion and Questions / Re: what exactly is silk screening?? on: November 02, 2004 09:36:03 PM
Simply put, silk screening is a term used in North America to describe the process of printing an image by forcing ink through a fine mesh screen which, in earlier days, used to be made of silk, hence the term. Non-printing areas are masked, preventing the passage of the ink (think of the way a 'stencil' works).

Nowadays with the mesh being made of synthetic fibre, you will find that the term is now called screen printing. However, both can be used. I merely offer the other term to assist you with your research.

While having a go on your own is great, I would still recommend you do some sort of short course should you wish to go forward in earnest. While the information in here is fabulous, it's not always correct and with some of the materials used, in the interests of health and safety (as well as producing good work as opposed to mediocre), it's a wise move to ensure you learn from a reliable source.

Hello everybodee ~ some excellent sites in here but on http://www.homecashbusiness.com/tutorials.htm
did anyone notice the guy was preparing and loading the screen back to front? 

A good idea to check the sources posted for correctness in the execution of technique. Just saves those new to screenprinting further hassles, that's all.

A tomayto and a tomato are exactly the same thing.
Silk screens and screen prints are not.

Enjoy!  Grin

Didn't enjoy it. IMHO, it was small and sparse. For the entry price it wasn't worth the effort.
I'm sticking to Sydney next time.

Amazed to find the old term for screenprinting being used...or do you actually use silk in your filament? I haven't used a multi-fibre in years - it's mono all the way now.

Aren't you concerned about copyright issues?
Just a thought.
