Screen Printer Job Description

A screen printer is a shop (or company) that prints T-shirts, sweatshirts, and other clothing items with designs.

The screen printer uses a variety of printing techniques to create an image and text on a garment.

These techniques include silk screening, in which ink is pushed through a screen onto an inked-up garment, and discharge printing, in which ink is pushed through the screen onto the garment and is then removed by an ozone generator.

The printer can also apply heat-transfer printing, in which ink is pushed through a mesh screen and onto a garment, or direct-to-garment printing.
