This paper is a postprint of a paper submitted to and accepted for publication in Electronics Letters and is subject to Institution of Engineering and Technology Copyright. The copy of record is available at IET Digital Library"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
