Title: Touch screen and method of manufacturing the same

Abstract: Disclosed herein are a touch screen and a method of manufacturing the same. The touch screen includes: a transparent substrate; a transparent electrode formed on the transparent substrate and including a sensing part sensing a touch input and an extension part extending from the sensing part to an edge of the transparent substrate; a wiring electrode formed at the edge of the transparent substrate and spaced apart from the extension part of the transparent electrode; and a conductive paste formed at the edge of the transparent substrate and covering both the extension part and the wiring electrode so as to electrically connect the transparent electrode to the wiring electrode, whereby the transparent electrode is formed after the wiring electrode is formed and the wiring electrode is connected to the transparent electrode through the conductive paste, thereby preventing the transparent electrode from being damaged.
