How To Screen Print Tee Shirts: Host Based Color Separations in AI

This screen printing video is about using host separations in Adobe Illustrator to create film positives for printing tee shirts. In this video I am using host separations even though a few times I refer to it as RIP separations. In actuality AI did the separations, not the RIP. But you can use RIP to do color separations if you wish depending on which RIP software version you have. Also forgive me at the end when I confused the printer profiles with the printer chooser…. LOL. There were a few anomalies in this video and the audio is poor but I didn’t have time to reshoot. I have too many things going on this week but you should get the idea from the video. The video walks you through how to create spot colors in order to use the host separations with RIP software to automatically separate the colors and produce the needed inkjet film positives. You’ll just have to put up with some heavy breathing and a few minor snafus. Enjoy!
