Screen printing originated during the Song Dynasty in ancient China (960 BC to 1279 BC). Initially, screen printing was primarily used for creating books and paintings. Over time, it gradually evolved into a widely applied printing technique in various fields such as textiles, advertising, packaging, and industrial products. Screen printing is a flexible, scalable, and versatile printing technique that offers numerous possibilities for creation and expression. In the 20th century, screen printing underwent further improvements and developments, becoming an important printing method in both commercial and artistic domains such as Pop Art.
