Author Peter Leis reckons that there is a need to fill the gap in information available concerning the screen printing business. His debut book is the fruit of a lifetime of experience, dozens of seminars and exhibitions conducted and attended that aims to give readers a “Background information for Screen Printers” (published by Xlibris AU).

This is a book for the beginner and experienced alike. It is a collection of knowledge the author gained while working in screen printing for over 50 years. He has worked as a teacher, production manager and business owner. Thus, his book contains information covering the background history of the core items such as mesh, stencils, squeegee and inks, all of which are key factors of the screen printing process. Also there is a considerable amount of useful practical advice that has been gathered together by the author over time.

Leis shares his knowledge and experience on the screen printing industry to give a broad view of such word-impacting trade to readers interested. By revealing the current applications and technologies used for this kind of business, he gives people willing to give it a try, a solid piece of information to start with.

The author shares that screen printing has an omnipresent quality about it — sometimes seen, sometimes unseen — and it contributes to or is part of many of the items people use everyday. Considered as a true child of the modern consumer society, it is important for people who are engaged or planning to engage in this kind of business to have a “Background information for Screen Printers.”
