Screen printing is the process of transferring a stencilled design onto a flat surface using a mesh screen, ink and a squeegee. Fabric and paper are the most commonly screen-printed surfaces, but with specialised inks it's also possible to print onto wood, metal, plastic, and even glass.
Custom Screen Printing in 10 Steps
Gather your supplies – we've got a complete list for you below!
Design your image or logo – you'll want a solid image with few thin lines because it will need to block light.
Print your image – print your image on a transparent film using an inkjet printer.
Coat your screen – cover your screen in a photosensitive emulsion. You want a thin, evenly spread layer of emulsion.
Burn your screen – place the transparent film with your image on the screen where the emulsion is and place it in an exposure unit. If you're doing this yourself use a 250 watt light bulb for about 10 to 15 minutes.
Rinse out your image – spray down your screen with cold water. You should notice the section of the screen with your image on it is starting to flake off, keep spraying until you can clearly see your image. Once your image is clear let the screen dry.
Tape up your screen – use masking tape to go around the inside of the screen to prevent ink from running into edges of the screen and spot check for any emulsion that was missed.
Set up your screen – connect your screen to the press and line it up with your substrates then screw it into place.
Print your screen – pick your ink color and spread it across the top of your screen with your squeegee in smooth up and down movements. For commercial screen printing this is typically done by a machine.
Cure your ink – carefully remove your product from the platen and set to dry or heat cure. If you're using plastisol ink it will take about 30 seconds at around 320 degrees Fahrenheit, but follow the instructions provided on your ink bottles. Once dry your custom printed shirts are ready to be worn!
