It got its name "silkscreen" in 1907 when Simon of Manchester patented a process for screen printing through silk fabric, which guaranteed higher tensile strength, greater dimensional stability and the use of rubber rollers (hereinafter rubber squeegees) for ink application. The invention was cataloged under the name SILK SCREEN PRINTING.
It is believed that this printing method originated in ancient times, but screen printing acquired its modern look in the middle of the 19th century. One of the features of silk-screen printing is the ability to obtain a thick ink layer with a thickness of 8-10 microns to 1000 microns and more (for offset printing, the thickness of the ink layer is 1-2 microns) with high hiding power and color saturation. You can also use special effects - glitters (sequins), volumetric printing, imitation when printing velvet or rubber.In the past century, silk-screen printing has gained significant distribution and use not only as a method of making copies in applied art, industrial design, when creating facsimile reproductions or in the field of large printing, but also as one of the self-sufficient types of author's printed graphics - printmaking with a pronounced style and the possibilities of expressing the author's plastic language. Today silk-screen printing is used by many artists of different currents, in various forms (graphics, painting, sculpture) and genres of fine art. Typically, the application of silk-screen printing in art is called serigraphy.
