I am trying to improve the color reproduction on white cotton shirts presently done in 4 color process and am advised by the artist of my work that 12 color is the way to go. My screen printer can do 8 colors. My basic questions are: who is the best person to make the decision on what color tones will be amplified? The screen printer or the person doing the color separations? And is 8 likely to be enough for art which has a lot of blending from one color tone to another or should I shoot for a printer who can do 12? Your assistance for someone new to screen printing is appreciated.
