Based on what I've read here, I'm assuming it'd be no problem to do this image in Plastisol. But can it be done in one color? I.E. the white is the shirt color, the black is the ink color at 100% opacity and the grays are the same ink color at varying levels of opacity. Hope that makes sense. Thanks.

The printer is going to say that's a 3-color design: black, dark grey, light grey.
Okay, that was what I was wondering. Didn't know if it could be one color ink vs. three, with the "grays" just being the ink color with less dense coverage so the shirt color comes through more to give it shading. Thanks.

Thanks all. I didn't plan on it looking just like the JPG. That's just how the vector ended up after playing with the pic in Photoshop and tracing it in Illustrator. My plan was a light blue shirt with the black in the image being navy and the grays being intermediate shades of blue. So based on what I've heard here, I can do that with halftones.

But I'll probably play around with the colors in Illustrator to get a rough idea of how the two options would look. And also try it with two colors, white and navy. With a light blue shirt, plus the white and navy with halftones, I'll probably be able to get something cooler than just halftones. Thanks.
