The History Of Screen Printing
Screen printing is one of the oldest methods of printing and can be traced back to the Song Dynasty in ancient China. Over the year Japan and other Asian countries refined the techniques of screen printing, however, screen printing would not be introduced to Europe until the late 1700’s. In 1907, a man by the name of Samuel Simon officially patented the screen printing technique. During these early times of screen printing, many techniques were kept secret by the printers
It was not until the famous Screen Printing of Marilyn Monroe by Andy Warhol that screen printing was brought into the mainstream and began capturing the public eye. The biggest hurdle left for screen printing was the rate at which t-shirts and other products could be produced. In 1920, a major advancement in screen printing custom t-shirts came thanks to inventor Michael Valistone, who invented the very first multi-color screen printing machine in 1960. Today, screen printing on t-shirts, hoodies, hats and other garments accounts for over half of all screen printed products.
