Let us first state that 95% of screen printing is done by Spot Colors, opaque inks,
that stay true through the entire printing run. Your project will probably fall in this
category, so the information here on 4-Color Process Printing, transparent inks,
may be technical & sound expensive. Don’t panic, we will help you select the
right road to take. We want your project to succeed.
See the Business page & Pre-Prints page that show examples
of 4-Color Process Printing.   At the top of this page you see a
Spot Color design built into an 8 color imprint. (above)
See the 4-Color Process example below (flower photo)
Screen Printing . . . The story in a nut shell: Once you decide
how many colors to imprint, your film separations are sent to
the darkroom and married with the correct screen. They are
put on the Exposure Unit, which burns the image into the
emulsion coated screen. Those screens are then prepared
and registered on the printing press. After the inks are printed
on the shirt it is placed on a conveyor belt that runs through a
350 degree gas dryer to cure the inks into the fabric.
1 to 8* color imprinting:
Adding color to a 1 color design can
bring interest & flair to any existing
Logo. Below Spot Colors are added
to produce an 8 Color Design.

Update your Logo by adding one
or two colors to create a new look.
NOTE: Each color represents
a "separation" as well as one
more "screen", a one color
imprint is economical, where
an 8 color imprint is the most
expensive to produce.
