Fine art work made out of silk-screen printing or serigraphy.

We make fine artwork through a printing process called Screen-Printing. This is a printing technique that uses a woven mesh to support an ink-blocking stencil. The attached stencil forms open areas of mesh that transfer ink or other printable materials, which can be pressed through the mesh as a sharp-edged image onto a substrate. A roller or squeegee is moved across the screen stencil, forcing or pumping ink past the threads of the woven mesh in the open areas. Screen-printing is also a stencil method of printmaking in which a design is imposed on a screen of silk or other fine mesh, with blank areas coated with an impermeable substance, and ink is forced through the mesh onto the printing surface. It is also known as silkscreen, serigraphy, and serigraph printing.

The stencils we use may be hand-cut by artists or produced photographically. Photo stencils are produced on either a special adhesive-backed film or by coating the screen itself with a light-sensitive emulsion. After exposure through a film positive, photo stencils are developed in water, image areas remain soluble and are washed away during development. Machines for screen process are unlike those for any other process: the inside of the screen frame itself acts as the ink storage duct. Ink is passed across and through the screen by the action of the squeegee. Hand screen-printing tables are used for some work, such as short runs and very thick or thin materials, but much screen work is now printed on fully automated sheet-fed presses, both flatbed and cylinder, operating at 4,000 to 6,000 impressions per hour.
No other printing process is as versatile as screen-printing. It can print on almost any kind of surface, wood, metal, glass, foil, plastic or fabric. It is used for the production of artworks, posters, transfers and show cards, for electronic circuits, for printing on packaging containers and for industrial applications such as instrument panels.
