Brief History of Screen Printing

Brief History of Screen Printing

Screen Printing is a printing technique that uses a mesh over an ink-blocked stencil. The stencil has open areas that transfer the ink through the screen using a squeegee. This method is used on T-shirts, wood and many other materials. It is believed that screen printing was invented by the song-dynasty of china. In the 1700's it was then adopted by Europe but still wasn't widely accepted until the 1900's when a English resident by the name of  Samuel Simon officially patented the screen printing technique. 

In 1960 a American Inventor by the name of Michael Vasilantone invented the
multi color rotary press that is similar to what we use today. Since then Screen printing has come a long way. With advanced Equipment that makes it capable of printing 1000's of shirts a day. Manual and Automatic Screen printing presses with micro registration giving the printer the power to have accurate and sharp prints.
