Silk Screen Printing

What is silk screen printing and how is it different?

Silk Screen Printing is just an old term for screen printing. Way back when in the 1940s, silk was used in the screens, but now it’s all polyester mesh, which is stronger and more resilient. Printers want the mesh in their screens to be as tight and strong as possible, in order to get the best print quality possible.

So yes, “silkscreening” and “silk screen printing” are the exact same thing as screen printing, just a much older term!
