What Is Tonal Printing?

This is a screen printing process where water-based ink is used to create a print that is either lighter than the t-shirt color or a little darker than it. Respectively, this ink is referred to as Tonal Light and Tonal Dark.

This will provide a vintage feel to the t-shirt. The print is extremely subtle and it can create the desired look on your favorite tee. The other ways to achieve a vintage look on your t-shirt is to blend the fabrics or use a texture to get a different look altogether.

About the Shade

If you are confused when choosing the t-shirt to get this tonal print on, there is a simple rule for you. It is best to choose a light-colored t-shirt to get dark tonal printing done and vice versa. For black or charcoal shades, you can get a grey color as the tonal print ink. If you consult with a professional designer, you can get the combination of both light and dark tonal prints in one t-shirt. The color of the t-shirt has to be neutral in this case to match the combination.

Material – The Most Suitable One

Basically, this works on any type of t-shirt in terms of fabric. It depends on your choice and how you want the print to be. For a lighter and worn out shade, a polyester or cotton blend material would be fine. And for a sharp and fresh look, nothing can beat cotton t-shirts.
