Custom Spot Color Screen Printing with Halftones
This process is essentially the same as the Spot Color technique but includes halftone dots of ink as well as solid areas. This makes a single color of ink appear as two or more shades of that color. These halftone dots can also be printed over other colors in your design to create more shading effects.
This is great for achieving the effect of having more colors than you actually do. So you can get an interesting looking print without needing a lot of colors.
This method has many advantages over CMYK 4 Color Process Printing, in that you get the exact mixed shades of color that you’re expecting, rather than hoping the CMYK produces the correct Pantone color in your logo or design. It also means reruns will turn out just the same as the first order, where this is sometimes difficult to guarantee with CMYK.
