Screenprinting, which is sometimes referred to as silk screening is a process that involves forcing ink through a stencil onto a fabric or surface. The stencil can be a digital image, a drawing, or a stock design.

Screenprinting does not involve embroidery or thread, although embroidery and machine stitching can be added to the screenprinted item if it’s made of fabric, to add depth, an outline, or a 3D effect.

For a do-it-yourself screenprinting project, you can follow a step-by-step process like the one found here: [Link opens in a new window, so you can return here when you’re ready].

To give you a little background on screenprinting’s origin, in Manchester England, Samuel Simon was issued a patent in 1907 for creating a printing screen made of silk fabric.

Before that time, the Greeks and Egyptians used stenciling to transfer shapes and designs onto walls and various objects.
