  • 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.

                                It took me a few seconds, but instead of AMP D, it says AMPED. It's clever making an electrical plug from the E and D. The abbreviation "amp' has a bunch of definitions, like amplifier or ampere....

                                It's been my experience that when clients see rough sketches, they are typically unable to envision a sketch becoming a finished product. They also see it as unfinished and seem to feel an urge to want...

                                Are those printed in CMYK? If your press is restricted to four colors, you're just not going to get realistic images without CMYK separations. And there's no sure-fire way of easily combining the colors...
