Screen printing has been around for 100s of years.
It's defined as the process of transferring a stenciled design onto a flat surface using a mesh screen, ink and a squeegee.
To create a screen a paint like substance, called emulsion, is coated onto a mesh and left to dry.
The emulsion hardens when exposed to light so a design is burned into the screen by blocking the light from a light box (or the sun!...not recommended).
The image is then washed out.
Various types of ink is available to use for printing. For our t-shirts we exclusively use waterbased based ink.
This ink is environmentally friendly (and vegan!) due to the fact it doesn't use plastics in its creation.
