Screen-printing, silk-screening, or serigraphy is a printmaking system that creates a sharp-edged image using a stencil. A screen-print or serigraph is an image shaped using this technique.

It started as an industrial technology, and was adopt by American graphic artists in the early 1900s. It is currently popular both in fine arts and in commercial printing, where it is generally used to print images on T-shirts, hats, CDs, DVDs, ceramics, glass, polyethylene, polypropylene, paper, metals, and wood. The Printer's National Environmental Assistance Center says "Screen printing is possibly the most adaptable of all printing processes." Since rudimentary screen-printing materials are so affordable and readily available, it has been used normally in underground settings and subcultures, and the non-professional look of such DIY culture screen prints has become a significant cultural aesthetic seen on movie posters, record album covers, flyers, shirts, commercial fonts in advertising, and elsewhere.

Types of Fashion

Haute Couture The type of fashion design which predominated until the 1950s was "made-to-measure" or haute couture. A couture garment is made for an individual customer. Look and fit take priority over the cost of materials and the time it takes to make. Mass Market these days the fashion industry relies more on mass market sales. This caters for a broad range of customers, producing ready-to-wear clothes in large quantities and standard sizes. Ready-to-Wear clothes are a cross between couture and mass market. They are not made for individual customers, but vast care is taken in the choice and cut of the fabric. Clothes are made in small quantities to promise exclusivity, so they are rather costly.

When analyzing languages, an analysis can be said to cover both the "syntax and semantics" relating to both the format and meanings of phrases in a language. The term semantics can be relevant not only to natural languages, such as English, German or Latin, but also to technical languages, such as a computer programming language.
