Four Colour Process On White T-Shirts
Our full colour, white t-shirts are printed using a traditional CMYK four colour process printing
method. Unlike full colour offset printing on paper - which uses a very fine dot pattern, usually
150 – 200 lines per inch - full colour t-shirts are printed using a 55 line per inch dot pattern. The
larger dot pattern allows the colours to blend together much better on the t-shirt fabric and
provides better colour reproduction.
The final printed result is what’s known in the industry as “PLEASING COLOUR”. Due to the
larger printed dot pattern, the colours and details will never be EXACTLY the same as the original
design, but they will still be pleasing to look at. For this same reason exact pantone match is not
available when full colour printing CMYK images on t-shirts.
