Also known as screen printing, silkscreening is a stenciling method that uses a porous mesh screen to press ink onto a material. Traditionally, the screen fabric was made of silk—hence the name silkscreening. Silkscreening dates back to the Neolithic period, when ancient Greeks used this stenciling method to embellish buildings, artwork, and tombs.
Benefits of Silkscreen Printing
Today, mesh screens are made from artificial materials like polyester, nylon, or even steel. Silkscreening remains an easy way to add custom designs to materials like glass, wood, fabric—and yes, even sheet metal!
Silkscreening is an alternative to engraving or painting. With no size or color restrictions, it’s perfect for large-batch applications like company logos, nameplates, part labels, and safety instructions. It’s durable and it won’t wash out.
