What is flat screen printing?

Flat screen printing is a digital printing process that uses a flat, rectangular screen to print images onto a substrate. The screens are coated with a photo-sensitive emulsion and exposed to light using a transparency or negative. Once the image has been burned into the screen, it is ready to be used for printing.

The substrate is placed on the bottom of the screen and ink is pulled across the top of the screen by hand, using a squeegee. The ink passes through the openings in the screen and is deposited onto the substrate below.

The history of flat screen printing

Flat screen printing is a printing technique that uses a mesh-covered frame to support an ink-blocking stencil. The stencil opening(s) determine the image areas that will print. Ink is squeegeed onto the screen, which transfers the ink to the substrate in the desired image areas.

Flat screen printing has its origins in hand stenciling. Stenciling has been used for centuries to create images on walls, fabrics and other surfaces. Early stencils were made by cutting out shapes from thin materials such as paper or parchment. The cut out shapes were then attached to a frame and used to apply pigment to a surface.

In the early 1800s, advances in lithography led to the development of machine-printed stencils. These stencils could be mass-produced and were much more precise than hand-cut stencils. Machine-printed stencils opened up new possibilities for flat screen printing, making it possible to print complex images with multiple colors.

Flat screen printing became widely used in the late 19th and early 20th centuries for commercial applications such as advertising, packaging and signage. Today, flat screen printing is still widely used in these applications, as well as for art prints, t-shirts, posters and other items.

How does a Flat Screen Printing Machine work?

A Flat Screen Printing Machine is a device that is used to print images or text onto a substrate. The machine consists of a frame, a substrate holder, and a print head. The frame holds the substrate in place while the print head moves across it. The print head contains an inkjet nozzle that dispenses ink onto the substrate.
