Screen printing

formerly called silk screen. Rather than print from a plate or cylinder, a stencil is prepared by hand or photographically on a screen or mesh. Ink is then forced through the screen and onto the substrate. Halftones can be reproduced, very thick ink films carried, and printing is possible on difficult surfaces such as the inside of bottles
