Screen printing belongs to hole printing, which is called the four printing methods together with lithography, embossing and gravure printing. Orifice printing includes transcript, stencil, inkjet and screen printing.

The principle of hole plate printing is: when printing the printing plate (the hole that can pass through the ink is made on the base of the paper film plate or other plates), the ink is transferred to the substrate (paper, ceramics, etc.) through the hole of the hole plate through a certain pressure to form an image or text.

Transcription printing, the simplest form of hole printing, began in the late 19th century. This kind of printing is made on specially made wax paper by using a typewriter or a stylus to make a wax paper graphic plate, and printing is carried out on the wax paper plate with an ink roller. The ideal printing effect can be obtained on the substrate. Screen printing is the most widely used in hole printing

Silk screen printing is to stretch silk fabric, synthetic fiber fabric or metal screen onto the screen frame, and make screen printing plate by hand engraving paint film or photochemical plate making. Modern screen printing technology is to use photosensitive materials to make a screen printing plate by means of photographic plate making (making the screen hole in the graphic part of the screen printing plate a through-hole instead of the screen hole in the graphic part blocked). During printing, the ink is transferred to the substrate through the mesh of the graphic part through the extrusion of the scraper to form the same graphic as the original.

The screen printing equipment is simple, easy to operate, simple and cheap in printing and plate making, and has strong adaptability. Screen printing is widely used in a wide range of common prints: color oil paintings, posters, business cards, binding covers, commodity signs, printing and dyeing textiles, etc.
