How many colors are we restricted to?

posted by wildart • 2 years ago

How many colors are we restricted to, I thought I had read somewhere that it was 10, is this correct? If so what constitutes a color,for example Red is one color,but does creating another shade of Red make it another color ?

For screen printed tees you are restricted to 10 colors for oversized prints and 4 for all overs. For digital printing you are not limited to the number of colors you use but the design can only be 15” x 20” max.

You can read more about this in the 101 section.
Shades of a color are usually considered another color unless you use halftones. There is a whole section in the 101s that explains this. We usually use the Pantone color system when screen printing our tees, you should use that for reference.
