As a hobbyist I've made a few tee-shirts, bags, and other items using a
real silk screen, transparencies, photo resist emulsion, PVC inks, and a
heat gun. I've done primitive "trap color" using registration marks, but
never "process color" (too hard without a 4 screens and better gear).
Is the process you use similar? I'm only asking because I'm curious. Also,
just out of curiosity, what kind of color process can you do on a circuit
board or side panel ?
The most complicated thing I've seen is CMYK process-color done with water
based inks and fancy super-tight registration. The results (not by me)
were really awesome, but I'm guessing that kind of thing isn't done the
same way on non-fabric materials (perhaps PVC inks work, though).
