Simulated Process Printing
Simulated process screen printing, commonly referred to as “sim process”, is our preferred method for printing detailed, color intensive images with a lot of blending and gradients. Sim process screen printing can be used on either light or dark shirts. Ink color counts can be as low as 2, but most often fall in the 6-10 color range.

We try to use all water based or discharge ink whenever possible, but some images are best done with our High Opacity (HO) water based inks. The separation fee is only necessary once per design. Reorders do not incur the sep fee again. Sim process prints often have custom Pantone colors required to achieve the look needed, so consider that when pricing your order. Pantone matches run $20/color.
Garment Color: The garment color plays a large role in how we separate for simulated process printing. If you plan on ordering multiple shirt colors or reordering down the road on a different shirt color, please let us know at that time and we can try to build the separations for those multiple shirt colors. Reorders on different shirt colors may need new seps if you don’t let us know before we separate the design the first time.
