In the 1980's Jeff Boyall and Wayne Cayton started work in a residential garage. Artwork was produced by hand and then exposed with an enlarger in a dark room. Mesh screens where made ready for ink to be passed through the screen. Although this is described in short, all these processes where lengthy and required great skill in accuracy and timing.
Even though it is old technology there remains a few areas where screen print is still the best process. Screen printed ink that is solvent based and post stoved, provides the toughest print. This type of extra tough print on polycarbonate is also the best choice for in-mold decoration for beverage print involving complex 3d shapes bar top dispense equipment.
For large runs into the thousands involving one or two colours onto flat substrate, screen print might also still be cost effective depending upon specifications. Also worth a mention is that screen print still has the edge when wanting to print a true silver, as there is metallic content within the screen print process unlike digital print inks.
