Do you mean to say, you do file preparation/color separation exactly the same as you do them for screen printing? Kinda still use half-tones and stuffs even though you are to print them in your Kornit?
Halftones are a function of output to convert continuous tone to a printable form for screen printing or offset exposures. DTG prints continous tone which means there is no interuption by halftone dots. However some of our special effect look like halftones. THere is in our opinion viable reasons for utilizing our screen experience in DTG
