Silk Screen Printed Floral Cards - Set of 2
Silk Screen Printed Floral Cards, Set of 2 - 47526
These brightly coloured cards are the perfect way to send your thoughts to a loved one, whether it be a birthday, anniversary, thank you, or simply to let them know that you are thinking of them.
This tasteful set of cards have been made by skilled artisans, using a method called silk screen printing. This is a printing technique where a mesh is used to transfer ink onto a substrate, except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil. A blade is moved across the screen to fill the open mesh apertures with ink, and a reverse stroke then causes the screen to touch the substrate, momentarily, along a line of contact. This causes the ink to wet the substrate and be pulled out of the mesh apertures as the screen springs back after the blade has passed. Only one colour is printed at a time, meaning that this really is a labour of love – but worth it for the wonderful finished product!
