All monitors are different, meaning that colors may vary slightly between monitors and true ink color. We can mix ink colors close to a Pantone color. Please consult the Pantone Solid Coated book. [Pantone colors]

What is an underbase?
When printing on colored garment, a base layer of special white ink is placed on the shirt first to keep the ink color true. The colored ink is then printed on top of the underbase. This is especially needed when the ink color is lighter than the shirt color.
What is dye migration?
A day after printing, the dye from certain shirts (poly/tri-blend) could bleed into the printed ink. It cannot be seen until a day AFTER a garment has been printed. If this is a concern, you may want to pay for a production sample to be sure you haven't ordered troublesome garments, or ask for a more expensive, special low temp-cure ink.
What are 4-color process inks?
CMYK process inks are transparent, so this process is suitable for white garments only. Printing process inks on a white base instead of directly into the fabric leads to a muddy image and unpredictable results.
What is simulated process printing?
Simulated process is an advanced technique that uses halftones of a few spot ink colors to represent the colors near to the original design. This process differs from 4-color process because solid, opaque inks are needed to print on colored shirts.
What is a halftone?
Halftone printing is a technique that simulates shading using dots. Halftones on fabric are not as subtle as they are on a monitor/poster.
