Screen printing, sometimes referred to as silk screen printing or serigraphy, is a stencil printing technique used in many different industrial production processes, where thick film deposition is required. It is a low cost technology and is frequently used for printings in advertising, for printing decors on dishes or textiles, for the printing on glass in automotive industries, for decorative applications and for electronic devices.
