Serigraphy, also known as screen printing, is a printing technique that involves pushing ink through a mesh screen onto a substrate, using stencils to create patterns or images.

The method is popular for producing high-quality prints and has been widely used in the creation of posters, textiles, and fine art. One of the key advantages of serigraphy is its ability to produce vibrant colors and intricate designs. Over the years, it has evolved to include digital processes, but the basic principle remains the same. The technique has also been adopted in industrial printing, where it is used for printing on various materials including fabric, paper, and even glass.
