Screen Printing----A Way To Print On Scarf
- Nov 01, 2018 -

There are mainly two ways to print on silk scarf. One is digital printing and the other is screen printing.

The most common used printing way for silk scarf is digital printing, which is faster and convenient.

Compared to the digital printing, screen printing has a higher requirement and MOQ, but with better backside effect.

We mainly introduce screen printing in this article.

Screen printing is a printing technique whereby a mesh is used to transfer ink onto a substrate, except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil. A blade or squeegee is moved across the screen to fill the open mesh apertures with ink, and a reverse stroke then causes the screen to touch the substrate momentarily along a line of contact. This causes the ink to wet the substrate and be pulled out of the mesh apertures as the screen springs back after the blade has passed. One color is printed at a time, so several screens can be used to produce a multicoloured image or design.

There are various terms used for what is essentially the same technique. 

Traditionally the process was called screen printing or silkscreen printing because silk was used in the process. 

It is also known as serigraphy, and serigraph printing. Currently, synthetic threads are commonly used in the screen printing process. The most popular mesh in general use is made of polyester. There are specialuse mesh materials of nylon and stainless steel available to the screen printer. There are also different types of mesh size which will determine the outcome and look of the finished design on the material.
