One more type of printing which is famous is Screen Printing. We print small stickers to banners. We can use screen printing for printing cloth banners and also small size rate stickers used in retail shops.

Screen printing is a technique which can be explained in various steps. Take a print of the artwork on a tracing sheet or even positives. It starts with exposing box, fitted with tubelights inside a wooden box with glass top. Keep the tracing facing opposite direction of the glass top. Place the screen on the glass top.

When you switch on the light, the impression on the tracing sheet imprints on the screen. Fit the screen to a clamp on the printing table. Place the paper below the screen on the table. Put the required colour on the screen. With the help of squeezer wipe the colour on the screen. You will get the impression from screen to paper.
