Burger #140 – Screen Print


Sometimes I feel like “screening”…

Here’s a hand screen printed t-shirt burger design, produced with a home screen printing kit.

The great method of screen printing dates back for ages:

From Wikipedia:

“Screen printing first appeared in a recognizable form in China during the Song Dynasty (960–1279 AD). Japan and other Asian countries adopted this method of printing and advanced the craft using it in conjunction with block printing and hand applied paints.

Screen printing was largely introduced to Western Europe from Asia sometime in the late 18th century, but did not gain large acceptance or use in Europe until silk mesh was more available for trade from the east and a profitable outlet for the medium discovered.”

It is one of the most widely used methods for printing, as one probably sees an example of screen printing everyday.
