Japanese Screen Printing

Here at Daintree, we stock a range of beautiful Japanese Screen Printed paper. Each design contains amazing detail and are all the more impressive because of the fact that they are handmade.

The paper used is machine made and is then pasted to a wooden board for stability, the first silkscreen is registered and ink applied. A new screen is carefully lined up with the previous one, a new colur is applied and the process is repeated.The example below shows a six stage screen print.

We have a large range of Japanese Screenprinted paper available online.
