With any type of artwork that you print, the printing process must be separated. Even with simple color separations, one screen per color should be used in the silkscreen separations process. With true process separations, four screens should be used. And with more complicated screen printing separations methods like simulated printing, more than three screens may be used depending on the artwork used.

Simulated process color separations

Simulated process color separations process combines Pantone colors and halftones to create full-color designs. What makes this method so popular is that the results are consistent as long as the same color separations technique is applied. Simulated process screen print separations can be done in Photoshop, more specialized software like Fast Films, Easy Art, and Spot Process may help you produce the results you desire quicker.

True Process color separations

True process color separations process involves four colors black, yellow, magenta, and cyan using Photoshop, or Easy Art. The advantage of this process includes saving time and labor by only having to use four screens.

Index silk screen separations

This process uses pixel dots instead of halftones in creating new colors and utilizes fewer colors to get the same look intended, which allows you to produce very fine details without risk of more. While you can use Fast Films, Easy Art, and Photoshop to develop designs for the index color separations method, a large press is required for multi-colored prints involving many screens.

Spot color silkscreen separations

Spot color silkscreen separation can be done by simply using CorelDraw, Adobe Illustrator, or another graphics program without any special software. The spot color silk screen printing separations process is suitable for one to three colors. Occasionally, spot color printing may be used with designs involving over 10 bright colors, though this is rare. No matter the number of colors in use, artwork that is vector designed only can be done through spot color separations.
