In this post we would like to go over some of the methods involved in screen-printing gradients. When screen-printing fades or gradients you’re actually simulating a fade using halftone dots. In the three color fade pictured here you’ll see that the positives are nothing more that a dot matrix that fits together like a puzzle (shown below).
Each of these positives or films are burned to screen and when printed together simulate the three colors as a smooth linear gradient.
Thanks for reading!
