  • Pantone colors

    If I am submitting artwork for a tshirt design, should I give coated or uncoated Pantone colors?

    Thanks!!!

    Well, a t-shirt would be by rights an uncoated medium, so uncoated is probably the way to go. Check with the t-shirt printer which way they'd prefer. Technically, it's kind of moot. If it's being silkscreened, they just need to reference your colors as separate spot channels.

      I would use Pantone Woven, or Pantone Tight-Weave.

          I'm fond of the Pantone Hanes Beefy T library, myself.

                Coated doesn't get cold in the winter.

                  They have coated and uncoated swatches to represent what the same ink will look like on coated or uncoated stock. Think of how an ink will look on gloss paper, where it is not absorbed as readily, as opposed to the look it has on a bond, where it is absorbed and spreads.

                  And I like my Beefy-T's with a coated ink also!

                    Uncoated swatches are all summer colors.

                      I would just give them the PMS color, yes it's an uncoated medium, but there ink only comes in for one purpose.

                        Are the U and C PMSs really different colors?

                              All of your t-shirt printed inks will absorb similar to uncoated, but keep in mind it totally depends on the fabric and color of t-shirt. Sometimes a funky cotton blend will result in a lesser color. Also, if you're doing iron-on transfers, remember to wash them inside out and let them air dry to make the transfer last longer.

                                I created my first signature in 12 years of not touching Photoshop or any graphics program in general. What do you guys think?

                                Oh, I wouldn't go so far as to say ''never use it for wide format.''
                                It gets used all the time for some very very large things. I recently did a 16' x 87' backdrop built in Photoshop. It was printed...

                                Generally like it a lot. Pretty different and that's cool.

                                Yeah, I have noticed they aren't as rich as I would like them to be. Luckily it seems like most of her stuff is going to be about online anyway. Thanks for the advice!
