Screen printing is a printing technique in which a woven mesh is used to support an attached stencil. The attached stencil is created to form open areas of mesh through which the ink may travel and closed areas blocking the transfer of ink to the substrate below. The ink is placed on the upper side of the screen mesh and a squeegee is used to move the ink across the screen and through the open areas of mesh. The ink that passes through the screen is deposited onto the substrate. The ink is then cured using either air, heat or both, until it has adhered to the substrate and created a permanent or semi-permanent bond.
