Screen Printing uses a fabric stretched over a frame. Images are created by blocking parts of the screen using different techniques. Ink is forced through the open areas of the screen onto the surface of the object. A separate screen must be prepared for each colour to be printed and colours must be applied in passes allowing drying time between each. This is the most common method of imprinting on promotional items and apparel such as T-shirt.
