Off-Contact Printing

In screen printing, making a printed impression with the printing screen adjusted so that it does not contact the substrate except along the line directly beneath the squeegee. The distance (when the screen is not under the load of the squeegee) between the stencil and the substrate can range from one-sixteenth to one-eighth of an inch, the distance occasionally being as great as three-eighths to one-half inch.
