What is Screen printing and what type of base cloth can I use?

Screen printing involves three parts; the screen as the image carrier, the squeegee and the dye stuff. Usually a very fine woven Polyester fabric is stretched over a frame to create a screen. One screen is required for each color in the design. A negative of each color/shape is placed on each screen and the print area is then washed out so the particular color can pass through the screens making the required design. Dye stuff or pigments are placed in the relative screen and with a squeegee going across each screen forcing the dyes/pigments through the open mesh thus printing the desired design.

Eclipse Textiles offers Screen printing on Nylon or Polyester base cloths. However other base cloths like Silk, Cotton, Viscose etc. are suitable for Screen printing.
