Default Screen Printing Colors Question!

For example

Contour Hooligans | Mos Wanted Crew

Do you see the shirt?
For example, when you print shirts
and you wanna make different colors on it
do you see the purple? It's over the white circle? and the things inside the "MOS WANTED CREW" those little images

How do you print stuff like that?

Do you just have different images on the screen
So like you just print something and print the next one you want over the thing you just printed? right?

Images like that require different screens to print each color and the screens must be registered in order for the prints to be properly lined up. You may even need an extra screen for white underbase depending on the type of inks you are using.

Aside from the chap wearing it seems to be having gastric difficulty, I make 4 or 5 colors.
So thats an oversize or all over platen, 5 or 6 screens (would do a white base, and a white overcoat) with a flash or two in there somewhere depending on how you sequence the colors.

Each color within the design gets its own screen.

The colors don't actually print on top of each other. The colors within the design are separated and knocked through.

So where you see white ink is only white ink. And where you see purple ink is only purple ink.

Hmmm, I thought he was just trying to look tough. Now that you mention it, it looks like he's trying to pass a peach pit.

That or he just got fired for showing up to work looking like a thug.

I'll go with the constipation aspect. He's definitely got something up his butt.
