Go Beyond CMYK Printing with Simulated Process Screen Printing
In “Simulated Process Screen Printing for Garment Decoration,” Charlie Taublieb of Taublieb Consulting, which specializes in technical screen printing for textile printers, will address designing artwork, separating, and printing procedures for simulated process screen printing for textiles. Tools of the trade, such as squeegees and mesh, as well as procedures will be discussed.
Unlike four-color (CMYK) process printing, implementing a simulated process for screen printing is easy, offers great effects, and, when separated properly, can be printed on any color garment, whether it’s light or dark, with stunning results, says Taublieb. The process lets you create an image with a multitude of colors while using only a handful of ink colors. The end results are often realistic, detailed images with a rich blend of colors.
Most shops today are using vector images (Corel Draw & Illustrator) because they don't understand how to separate and print raster images (Photoshop). On Wednesday, October 23rd at 1:00 pm in Room C141, Taublieb, who is also Chairman of the Academy of Screen & Digital Printing Technologies, will share actionable tips to get great results when using the simulated process for apparel printing.
