Posters, like other printed matter, can be produced using a number of different printing techniques. In silkscreening (also called screenprinting), ink is pushed through a screen directly onto the surface of the paper. Since each color is applied through a separate screen, layers of ink build up on the paper, giving the print a richly textured surface. The inks themselves are bright and opaque, allowing for a vibrancy that is particular to silkscreen prints.
The silkscreen process is labor intensive, but many poster designers (and their clients) are dedicated to the technique for the stunning results it produces.
While photographs cannot adequately convey the quality of a printed surface, the colors and textures in these silkscreened posters give them serious wow factor in person.
