Today I found this article detailing where screen printing came from and the advancements we have made today. As some of you may know, screen printing began with cavemen printing their hands on walls in caves and continued on until the invention of the silk screening process in the early 1900’s. Luckily for us, screen printing methods expanded on into the mid 1900’s and then all the way up until today. Although there are many new ways of transferring ink onto a garment (direct to garment printing), we still prefer the “old fashioned way of screen printing” and continue to do it like Samuel Simon of Manchester.
Why should you use screen printing instead of heat transfer? The answer, you shouldn’t. Both processes have their advantages and applications. The purpose of this blog is to help you understand the various advantages to help you make an informed decision of which process to go with.
