The Perks of Simulated Process Printing
When an image is not reproducible using our standard Spot Color Process, is a photograph, or a complex full color illustration that you want to be printed on either dark or light colored garments - then Simulated Process Printing would be your best choice.
There are many great things about Simulated Process Printing. Using this print method we're able to achieve incredible detail - including photo realistic prints. Although you can achieve full color photo realistic prints with CMYK Printing, Simulated Process allows you to do it on dark colored garments unlike CMYK.

With other print methods, it's much harder to achieve RGB Spectrum colors and much easier to achieve the CMYK colors.
