Four-Color Process

This method is most effective when attempting to reproduce realistic photos. It can also be used for graphic images that contain a wide variety of colors. Four-color process is printed with four colors: cyan, magenta, yellow and black (CMYK), and is best on white or very light-colored garments due to the translucent properties of the inks.



 

 

 

Simulated 4-Color Process

Images created with the simulated color process have a photorealistic look, but are not printed with the four process colors of CMYK. Instead, it uses spot-color inks. When printing simulated process color, the artist creates separations of halftone images for spot colors like red, yellow, blue, etc., using as many colors as the shop’s press can handle. It works on light garments, but is best for dark garments. This process produces a bright image, even when printed on a white-ink under base.

 

Vintage Soft-Hand

This popular technique produces prints with a washed-down appearance and vintage quality, especially when combined with distressed artwork. An additive is incorporated to the ink mixture and the designs are printed without the use of an underlay to achieve the distressed look.

 



Specialty inks

Vantage offers several specialty inks for a unique high-impact affect. Clear soft-hand gives the logo a tonal look. Gold, silver and black metallic ink brings logos to life with the illusion of metal. Make logos sparkle and shine with Crystalina, achieving a specialty effect to that of glitter.
