This letter introduces a novel technique for inkjet printing frequency selective surfaces (FSS) on textiles. The challenge of printing an inkjet layer of three micron thickness on polyester cotton with a surface roughness of the order of 150 microns is achieved with a screen printed interface layer. The conducting inkjet layer is then printed directly on top of the interface layer. A screen mask was used so that the interface layer was only printed directly below the conducting ink. A square FSS structure has been fabricated and the measured shielding has been compared to simulations.
