I'm designing a 3 color label for a bottle. Can I use overprinting to create additional colors or is that too artsy-farsty for the bottlers? Anyone one have experience with this?
no experience but never seen it done. i'd guess overprints are probably not reliable for mass production screenprinting.
ask your printer.
ask your printer. Ssilkscreening typically involves opaque inks. You would probably have to overprint a screen of your color to get the effect (and screens are usually much more coarse than with lithography). I believe there are some transparent inks available but I don't know much about them.

- that is vinyl on glass...isnt it?Hurley
- red and blue in the front of both sides, and I believe there is a grey right behind those colours, to make it look more 3D.juhls
- Because it's screenprinted, there are very minor differences between each print (like a 1mm spot of blue ink or red ink missing).juhls
Use an epoxy based ink.
you could use a color glass or the color of the drink as an added color also.
