This technique is best for graphic with solid layers that are limited within 6 colors. It is also the most cost effective. This is good to be printed on any color garment. Dark garments will require a white underbase and varying "Flashes".
Multi colored graphics, photographic images and complex designs are printed this way. Similar to a standard inkjet paper printer, your graphic is printed with transparent CMYK ink that when layered combines to make the full spectrum of color needed.
Here, your graphic resembles a CMYK print except that instead of layering transparent inks, it is printed with opaque colors. This result in vibrant shades and tones. This printing is limited to 6 colors and is good for any color garment.
