What is a Screen Printing Press?

Screen printing presses are different from other printing presses. A standard printing press uses pressure to apply ink to an object while a screen printing press uses a mesh fabric that is stretched in a frame to make a print. If you have seen t-shirts or hats with printing on them, most likely those fabrics were printed on with a screen printing press.
