What are you wanting to know? Can anyone help you what? So far you have only made a statement of having a 4 color press and 7 color design. What do you need help with?

A example may help. There are many was to print multi color with less colors. Did a design last week guy got a quote from a shop said it was 12 colors. I was able to do on my 6 color press. although The hues have to be close and the Neon green probably wont be much help unless there is some green in the design

4 color does make it hard and you would have to use opaque inks unless there is white and even then I would try to save that foe a highlight white istead of a underbase and highlight on sam screen

It depends entirely on the design, in theory it is a no. You cannot print a 7 colour design with a 4 colour carousel.

It is however possible to put 2 colours on the same screen. But I stress this depends on the design.

I dont know about your shirt color creating issues, but CYMK is how to get it done

I've been toying with the idea of making a white under base screen that is centered on the platen. this would be a floating screen that would not be attached to your machine. once the white is printed and flashed, then you can CMYK the rest as if it were a white shirt. you could do an oval or rounded rectangle where the edges of the white print seem to fade into the shirt color(half tone / gradient). Just an experimental thought~

But why, in theory, is it a no?

You sound absolute that you can't do 7 on a 4. Why not?

I didn't say it was an absolute no.If you actually read my reply properly Tygeron, I actually say it can be done, but it depends on the design.

Maybe you should re-read what you wrote.

What you meant and what you wrote contradict. Above is your exact quote. Maybe you meant that in theory it is a "yes". And you "can" print a 7 color design with a 4 color carousel.

I think I get it though. You probably meant "spot colors", where their orientation in the graphic matters and colors may be doubled up or tripled up, etc.

The OP didn't specify "spot colors" specifically and exclusively.

Your can do a lot with over printing. Depending on the colors. The there is CMYK.

OP put up a picture of what they want and then we can tell you if it will be possible with your press and shirt color

Thanks,
Jeron
