Printing is the transfer of ink onto a surface. Two forms of printing that can be done by hand are screenprinting and block printing.
Also called silkscreening or serigraphy, screenprinting is a process by which an image is transferred through a synthetic silk fabric onto paper or another flat surface. To get started you need screenprinting inks, a squeegee to apply ink, a stencil or item to print from, a surface to print on and a silkscreen frame. These frames are covered with silk and can be purchased pre-made or you can make them yourself.
Also called relief printing, block printing is the process of creating a raised surface on a block that is inked and pressed onto paper. Block printing is like rubber stamping. The raised image is created by gouging away areas on block surfaces such as linoleum, wood blocks, or plastic eraser blocks
