DBH color limit ?

posted by zinodaur • 5 years ago

I forgot what the color limit is on DBH.

Was it 6 colors ? Or 8 ? I can’t seem to find any info.

Thanks a butt.

Oh, and by the way, I’m asking this because I see a lot of shirts that look like they have a billion colors. Especially the watercolor ones. How do they do it ?

I believe the color limit for an all-over design is 3 (Max of 4 if really necessary), or 8 for a standard or over-sized. The way artists make it look like 256 different colors when they only really use 3 or 4 is with halftones.

We occasionally print 10 colors but only for super great designs. The limits are as Intrepid said above ^ Some artists use halftones to create the illusion of many colors, clever so and so’s!

Ah, yes, I do know of the halftones. But I don’t know how to take halftones and make’em look decent with halftones. Haha.

Thanks for the color answer.
