BBC – GCSE Bitesize: Printing.

Fabrics are printed by block or screen printing. In screen printing a pattern is printed onto fabric through a stencil held in place by a screen. Each screen prints one part of the design in one colour. After printing the dyestuff must be fixed using steam or dry heat.
