The Silk Screen Printing Process:

A screen made of silk mesh is stretched over a wooden frame

a design stencil is then glued to the frame

Silk screen Printing the ink is then pressed on the screen through the stencil with a a rubber blade, known as a squeegee. the ink will then go through the design on the screen and appear onto the garment.
