Screen printing is a printing technique that uses a woven mesh to support an ink-blocking stencil to receive a desired image. The attached stencil forms open areas of mesh that transfer ink or other printable materials which can be pressed through the mesh as a sharp-edged image onto a substrate. A fill blade or squeegee is moved across the screen stencil, forcing or pumping ink into the mesh openings for transfer by capillary action during the squeegee stroke. Basically, it is the process of using a stencil to apply ink onto a substrate, whether it be t-shirts, posters, stickers, vinyl, wood, or other material.

Screen printing is also a stencil method of print making in which a design is imposed on a screen of polyester or other fine mesh, with blank areas coated with an impermeable substance. Ink is forced into the mesh openings by the fill blade or squeegee and onto the printing surface during the squeegee stroke. It is also known as silkscreen, serigraphy, and serigraph printing. One colour is printed at a time, so several screens can be used to produce a multicoloured image or design.

Screen printing is a form of stencilling that first appeared in a recognisable form in China during the Song Dynasty (960–1279 AD).[1][2] It was then adapted by other Asian countries like Japan, and was furthered by creating newer methods. The most useful advancement was also developed in japan recently and culminated in the introduction of the GOCCOPRO.

GOCCOPRO:- all the artistry of the original process with all the ease of a modern day digital system.

Today we are creating the screen printing history of tomorrow. If you buy a GOCCOPRO you will be involved in writing the history of the amazing strides forward in the advancements of screen printing thats happening today
