Silk Screen printing is the old and traditional way wherein a mesh is used to transfer ink onto a substrate, except in areas made impermeable to the ink by a blocking stencil. Traditionally, it was called screen printing or silkscreen printing because silk was used in the process prior to the invention of polyester mesh.
