Screen printing is a printing technique where a mesh is used to transfer ink onto a screen, except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil. A blade or squeegee is moved across the screen to fill the open mesh apertures with coloured ink, and then a stroke along the length of the screen causes the screen to touch the paper under the screen momentarily. This causes the ink to push through the gaps in the mesh to print the image onto the paper and then the screen springs back after the blade has passed. One color is printed at a time, so several screens can be used to produce a multicoloured image or design.
