What is Silk Screen?

Silk Screen is another term for screen printing, often used in the context of printing on fabrics.

This technique involves pushing ink through a mesh screen that has been prepared with a stencil of the artwork. Each color in the design typically requires its own screen, making the process best suited for bulk orders to keep costs effective. Brands favor silk screening for its ability to produce bright, crisp colors that last long even after multiple washes, making it ideal for apparel and promotional items. Industry reports show that this method remains a top choice for merchandise due to its cost efficiency and high-quality results.
