Demystifying the Four-Color Process for Our Clients
As a t-shirt screen printing expert for 26 years, clients often find the four-color process of screen printing mystifying. However, this technique, though intricate, is a cornerstone of vibrant and detailed t-shirt designs. At Northwest Custom Apparel, we prioritize educating our customers. This helps enhance their understanding and appreciation of the art of screen printing. We break down the four-color process and explain each step, ensuring our clients understand its impact on the final product.
Navigating the Complexities of the Four-Color Process in T-Shirt Design
Often perceived as a complex art form, the four-color process can baffle those unfamiliar with print design—especially those outside advertising agencies or in-house artist teams. Most clients are unaware of the intricacies of transforming their ideas into vivid t-shirt designs. A misunderstanding gap between clients and printers can lead to confusion and unrealistic expectations. Clients may provide separations intended for offset printing, not realizing that these are incompatible with t-shirt screen printing.
Bridging the Knowledge Gap: Explaining the Four-Color Process
Northwest Custom Apparel offers a basic yet comprehensive explanation of the four-color process to bridge this knowledge gap. This printing technique combines four primary colors – cyan, magenta, yellow, and black – to create a range of hues. We show our clients color overlays provided by separators. This gives them a visual understanding of how their designs come to life. This approach helps demystify the process and sets realistic expectations about the vibrancy and intensity of the final product.
