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.
- differs from four color process in that it uses spot colors rather than CMYK
- works on light garments but best for dark garments
- produces a bright image, even when printed on a white-ink under base
