For every colour in a screenprint, we need a film and a screen. This is why printing gets more expensive for more colours, and less expensive per unit the more you print. We use inkjet imagesetter , special UV inks , film and photographic stencils to produce our screens. We’re able to hold very fine detail ( .35mm lines ) and fine halftone screens for photographic images. ( up to 55 lpi conventional or 190 dpi stochastic dot )
Typically we’ll use Photoshop to separate the colours in the image. The following images show how for this design the print was built up using a dark grey base on a black shirt, with lighter greys and a final white. Printed using a 180 dpi stochastic dot.
