Simulated Process printing uses spot color inks to achieve a photo-real look.
Simulated Process is an advanced printing technique that uses spot opaque colors, along with halftones of a few of the colors, to represent the colors in the original artwork. This technique is often used to achieve a photorealistic look. Simulated differs from true 4-color process, in that the inks are solid colors, usually printed on dark shirts. Simulated generally requires the use of an under-base to achieve brighter and more vivid colors. Effective use: when required to match complex or photographic images on dark garments
