Screenprinting Squeegees in a Print Shop.

Screenprinting Squeegees in a Print Shop.

Screenprinting squeegees are used to pull ink across the surface of a screenprinting screen. In the process of screenprinting, the artist draws onto the screen, makes a stencil or burns a photographic image on the screen first. Paper is placed beneath the screen, ink is placed on top of the screen, and a squeegee is used to pull the ink over the image on the screen. Ink goes through the openings of the stencil or image and onto the paper.
