Custom Screen Printing: A Quick History Lesson
Remember when people used to buy bolts of fabric from the town general store and sewed their own clothes? Ah, the good old days. Chances are, you don’t personally remember living in such times. If you do, all the power to you. If you were born less than a century ago, you probably still get the idea. All apparel was custom apparel back then. And though screen printing technically existed as far back as the late 900’s A.D., custom screen printing certainly wasn’t widely available.
During the twentieth century, screen printing was used for military apparel, posters, and many other things. That is all well and good but the wonders of true, modern custom screen printing saw its glorious birth in the 1960’s. A special type of custom screen printing machine was designed, revolutionizing the production of screen printing. Add in prolific pop artists like Andy Warhol, and you have the birth of real custom screen printing.
Today, custom screen printing is immensely popular. Ink formulas have been refined, screen printing technology has advanced, and our screen printers have perfected their technique. All this has culminated in the wonderful beast custom screen printing is in the present. Custom screen printing is accessible, versatile, and useful. It’s time for you to get on board and take advantage of modern custom screen printing capabilities.
