?Screen printing was originally known as silk screen printing as the material that was used to create the screen was silk. However, this is no longer the case and screen printing now utilises other forms of fabric. Screen printing has a long and varied history and is a printing method that has been successfully used for many centuries. There are currently four major forms of screen printing that are available. These screen printing methods are: Plastisol: Plastisol printing provides a sharp and consistent print with strong and vibrant colours that can be applied to almost all garments. Colours can be produced exactly to match the Pantone Colour Chart. Plastisol printing provides a soft feel finish with a long lasting, quality print. Waterbase, RTU and Supercover: Water based inks are regularly used for printing darker colours onto lighter coloured garments, they penetrate the fabric further than the plastisol inks to create a much smoother finish and softer feel. Supercover printing also allows for colours to be successfully printed onto darker garments. Discharge: Used to print both light and dark garments, discharge works by removing the dye in the garment - this means they leave a much softer texture. Exact colours are hard to produce but the printing technique is perfect for distressed or vintage prints. Foil: As its name suggests, glue is printed onto the garment and a foil is applied for a mirror finish.
