Screen printing is a process by which an image is imposed onto a specialized mesh (screen) creating a stencil. Inks or coatings are pushed through the apertures in the mesh by way of a squeegee under pressure and transferred onto a printing surface.

The image to be stamped is etched in relief on the plate so the design is raised, rather than recessed.
