What is halftone printing?

Halftone is the technique that simulates continuous tone imagery through the use of dots, varying either in size or in spacing, thus generating a gradient-like effect. Designs with gradients can be printed on T-Shirts using this halftone technique and such prints are called Halftone Prints. Where continuous toned images have various colour shades, the halftone process reduces the design to only one colour where the gradient effect is created by varying the size and space between the dots.

    Halftone Printing on T-Shirts is best suitable for the following designs and occasions:

  1. Photographic Prints

  2. Designs with Gradients

We use this technique to print photographic or otherwise multi-tonal artwork using only one ink color, which can often significantly reduce order costs. Some art in our Design studio contains halftones already, and we can also use them when preparing your uploaded art for print to ensure your screen printed items resemble your original upload as closely as possible.
