Tonal Printing – A New Star to Reveal Your Unique Choice
With time and advancement of technology, an evolution has affected every sector. Printing is no exception. The method, types, designs and materials have all undergone a lot of changes as per technological inventions and upgrades.
The method of tonal printing is one such fruit of technology that is quite new in the industry. It is a unique method to provide an all-new look that will grab your attention. The t-shirt printing industry in OKC is adopting this new technique gradually. Meanwhile, you can take a quick tour of this concept.
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.
