Simulated Screen Printing

Simulated process printing is a technique that uses a limited number of ink colors to create a wide range of colors. It combines traditional spot colors with halftones and gradients to mimic the effect of full-color process printing. This technique is a great way to save on costs since only a few screens are created.

This is also sometimes referred to as “sim process” for short.
