Industry Info – What is a Half Tone?

A half tone is a printing technique where small dots of solid color are used to create a blending or gradient effect. We use half tones in our custom artwork to add dimension without adding cost.

For example, below is a screen printed t-shirt design for the Making Strides Against Breast Cancer walks.

If you take a closer look, you can see that small dots of solid pink and solid blue overlap to create the illusion of a gradient of purple.

This is an effective way to add depth, blending and shading onto a custom screen printed shirt design. To design your shirts online visit PromoSpark’s Design Studio.
