Overprints or simulated same thing. Its just where 2 colors can make a third or forth color. You would be amazed with how many colors can be made with just 2-3 colors and the shirt color.

That particular print was International coatings 7014 legacy white, the rest were 700 series. so just standard opcity inks. I almost would like to retry using the Union max opaque inks. but no time!!

White, scarlet red or super drake red can't remember on the red, lemon yellow but golden yellow could have been used with a better looking print but the lemon was closer to ten original, green. In simulated prints I rarely use orange unless there is no red, brown or tan was made. Basically if no red is needed to simulate another color. This was actually the first print that I couldn't believe between the yellow, red and the black in the shirt that orange, brown, a redish brown, tan. Since then I have done about 20 print where this was used. Now with Simple Seps 4 having the interlocking feature it actually improves the ink coverage which would have improved the vibrance of the print and allowed the use of maxopaque inks.

I apologise for the misunderstanding,I did mean spot colours, of course you can print a multcolour design using trichomatic inks.

But you can also print more than 4 spot colours on a 4 colour carousel, it would depend on the design.

Today we printed 3500 white t's. Too look at the T , you count 8 colours but we only printed with 5 screens. we used 3 trichomatic screens, cyan, magenta, and yellow, but also 2 spot colours light pink and dark purple. The design is full chest and looks amazing.
