Johannes Gutenberg was a German inventor who contributed to the 15th centuries tech by creating the print and press which later became revolutionary. It enabled mass production of writing and books.




Traditional screen printing

Transparent sheets are where the pattern desired is either painted on or printed onto. that can then be held to the squeegee by a machine that used ‘vacuum’ force to hold them against each other. They later use ink to finalise the design.

When you force ink through hole on a screen{usually  mesh} – usually to get a design. The screen is usually fine so the pattern is defined. A template is also used.

Put stencil over top or in frame, ink is spread over it by a squegee, the ink is forced through. Used to unevenly use spatula type piece to coat the screen.

Back in the day they used to do it in kitchens and bathrooms, After using thick in to print the pattern, they used to put it in the oven to cure it{heat it} for a minute. unfortunately that ,meant the design used to flake off.

Now – flash dry



Lithograph printing



Here we made a design and were told to duplicate artboards to show how the different colours would have to been.

Harden in uv light when mixed {multion and sensitizer} – spread coating of moltion in DIM LIGHT. Hallogen lights – good for exposure with consistency , iron can be used to cure for 6-8 minutes.
