Vintage T-Shirt Screen Printing Techniques: Color Palette
Color Palette: Choose your colors wisely when making a screen printed t-shirt that is meant to look like it was printed decades ago. We have the capability of screen printing amazingly bright inks these days but that wasn’t as easy way back when. Also, colors simply fade over time. So I’d recommend using a color palette that is more subdued than normal.
