However before you get into the market of screen printed bags, you should learn some simple words used in this field.

  1. The term “Artwork” refers to the image, caption, slogan or statement on your t-shirt that you want to print. This is the first step in the screen printing process and many software is available on the market for this purpose. What’s important here is to do it in vector format. In general Corel Draw and Adobe Illustrator are used for printing the artwork.
  2. The ‘SEPS’: The ‘SEPS’ or the separations, in common words, are the separate films on which each color is printed. This will help to burn the images on the screen of each different color to give a clear, fine print.
  3. The Screen: It is a square tool made of wood or aluminum. A closely knit net is loosely placed over it, called a “mesh.” It is used on a t-shirt to effectively remove the text.
  4. The MESH: As described in the third chapter, it’s a web-like meshy substance that’s spread tightly on the frame. It is porous in nature, and has tiny pores of various sizes that cause the ink to pass through it in different amounts depending on the design of the print. Depending on the size, the screens have differing mesh counts and lower mesh count screens allow more ink to flow through them.
  5. Emulsion and its use: This is a solvent used to cover the panel pores where you don’t want the ink to flow. Emulsion is placed on the panel which covers the pores along the way as it dries up in the dark space. In this way a clear representation of the print is placed on the projector and none else shows on the shirt but the actual print.
  6. Coat: This applies to sealing unwanted pores on the glass by covering the emulsion with it.
  7. The burning process: Here halogen light or light bulb with very high wattage is used to burn the design on the item to be printed. The picture absorbs the light on the projector and the emulsion stays fragile here and gradually gets washed away and the ink flows through to build the illusion. A fine print is created in this way.
  8. Use Halogen and high wattage lamp etc: They effectively cover the glass pores and are used to build a clear image of the screen display. To achieve successful end output, a transparent print in burned on the silk sheet.
  9. SQUEEGEE and its purpose: This is used all over the panel to finely smear the ink.
  10. 10. PLASTISOL: It is the unique ink which is used for screen printing. It has distinctive properties suitable to its function, e.g., it does not dry off even when left out unless it is drying at high temperature exactly.
