Screen printing is said to be the most versatile among all the other printing processes. However, the printing process of screen printing is very crucial and tedious in which many complicated steps are involved. The first step for printing is to place a screen on top of a substrate, in which the substrate can be materials such as a paper or a fabric. The ink is then placed on top of the screen, with the fill bar to fill the mesh opening with inks. After that, the operator will begin by lifting the screen. This is to ensure that the screen does not have any contact with the substrate. The operator will then use a slight amount of downward force to pull the fill bar to the front of the screen.
The squeegee is then being used to move the mesh down to the substrate and the squeegee will then be pushed to the rear of the screen. In the meantime, the tension of the mesh will pull the mesh away from the substrate, in which this action will leave the ink upon the substrate surface.
