If you are a beginner or an intermediate artist and want to know how to do art for t-shirts and have the tools and knowledge that you will help guide you, then The Art of T-Shirt Color Separation is the best and least expensive way to start.
Photoshop is a fantastic program for designing art for T-Shirts. It is also a great tool to build Color Separations in Channels to make that design a great image on a T-Shirt. This book teaches how to accomplish that goal in simple and easy step-by-step exercises, using different methods to make these separations come back together on the press to duplicate the design on the computer.
Discover How To:
• Separate colors for printing on black shirts
• Cross between RGB and CMYK channels
• Simulated and 4 color process
• Splitting channels to place separately into a vector program
• Outputting channels as an EPS composite from a vector program
• Create halftones without a rip software program
• Understanding the characteristics of individual channels
• The tools, palettes, hot keys and much more
No DVD! FULL Photoshop files are downloaded from the cloud at the click of a mouse as you need them for each exercise.

I get a lot of art that I really enjoy having fun taking apart and rebuilding into a production separation for T-shirts. Most of the time it is the blending of colors to create more color. This one was not one of those. There were quite a few spot colors with deeper shades of the pure, bright colors. A nice challenge for so many spot colors. I really wanted it to look great on a T-shirt. I mean, this is the Toxic Crusaders!
