A vital part of Psylo’s Ethno-Punk style are the prints. They are a medium for weaving the Psylo Art into our streetwear designs.
The prints are made In-house, using a printing technique dating back to the 10th century China - Screen Printing. Known also as silk-screen, screen, serigraphy, and serigraph printing, it is one of the most versatile printing processes. A printing technique in which a mesh is used to transfer ink onto a substrate, except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil. One colour is printed at a time, so several screens can be used to produce a multicoloured image or design.
At their simplest, screen printing materials are widely available and affordable, making it the preferred technique in many underground settings and subcultures.
he non-professional look of DIY culture screen-prints has become a significant cultural aesthetic seen on movie posters, record album covers, flyers, shirts, commercial fonts in advertising, in artwork and elsewhere. Probably the most famous example is Andy Warhol’s Marilyn Monroe colourful print...
Most importantly, from Psylo Fashion’s perspective, is the fact that screen-printed fabrics wash well and can maintain the print quality for longer. As durability is vital to our designs and values, it’s easy to understand why we like Screen Printing so much!
