Printing is one of the four inventions of the working people of ancient China. It is a technique for copying originals such as text, drawings, photographs, anti-counterfeiting, etc., to transfer ink onto paper, fabric, plastic, leather, glass etc by the processes of plate making, ink application, pressurization etc.  

Screen printing refers to the use of a screen as a substrate to get a screen printing plate with graphics by the making method of photosensitive plate, screen printing consists of five major elements, including screen printing plates, squeegees, inks, printing stations, and substrates.

When printing, the ink is poured into one end of the screen printing plate, and a certain pressure is applied to the ink portion on the screen printing plate by the squeegee, and at the same time, the other end of the screen printing plate is moved at a constant speed, and the ink is scraped from the graphic during the movement, part of the mesh is squeezed onto the substrate. 


The mesh of the screen printing plate can be used to transmit ink, while the ink on the mesh of the non-image part can not be penetrated, by this way we can get the graphic printed on the body of glass jars and glass bottles.
