What is a screen-print?

Refers to a print produced through a printing technique in which a ink is transferred using a mesh to a substrate safe for those areas blocked with a stencil to make them impermeable to ink. Screen prints are usually made on posters, T-shirts, vinyl, stickers and wood or any material usable for this purpose. Screen printing is also a method of stencil printing and is sometimes known as serigraphy, serigraph printing, screen or silk screen. (Image © Petr Lerch/Shutterstock)
