We spent so much time looking at t-shirts, and the designs that go on them, we feel it’s important to learn more about the process. One of the things that we always thought was fascinating about t-shirt printing, was how the artwork went from the computer screen to the t-shirt. This artwork tutorial from VectorTuts
The tutorial shows step-by-step how to take vectored artwork in Adobe Illustrator and create your own color separations. Why is this important? The main reason they push for t-shirt designers to do this themselves before sending the artwork to a printer, is to proof their work. They mentioned a few telltale signs went looking at the separations to determine if a mistake was made in the final draft of the t-shirt design.
It is definitely worth a look and even a try if you have some artwork in Illustrator to play with.
