Screen Printing

To teach Printing Technologies I’m going to try a screen printing project.   I think students would enjoy doing silk screen printing.  Students would design and print their own t-shirts/bags/etc.  (One possible alternative project would be producing a stamp as a form of printing.)

The Thermal Screen Printing Process can greatly simplify the screen making process:

A special kind of screen is used.  Instead of stretching silk on a frame, spreading light-sensitive emulsion, drying, and exposing; all you have to do is get a laser print out of the design and run it through a thermal copier with the special screen.
