Traditional screen printing, or serigraphy, is essentially the process of applying ink through a stencil. The 'screens' are a fine-mesh that’s stretched over a rectangular frame and coated in light-sensitive emulsion. The design is split into spot colors, with each color printed onto transparent film and exposed onto a separate screen. Exposing the screen makes a stencil of the design, only allowing ink to pass through the exposed design. A screen is then placed onto the print surface, and ink is pressed through the mesh, forming the print. This process is repeated for each additional color, with the use of a high-temperature flash in-between. After the print is applied in each color, the item is placed through a heat tunnel to cure and dry the ink onto the garment.
