To me, the thick black lines in the artwork look faded. I took a photo, but the photo looks much better than than the shirt looks to me in real life.
I tried taking a close up photo.
It's not as bad as the shirt I posted about earlier in this thread. But you can easily see hundreds of speckles.
When I look at the black areas with a magnifier, all of the black areas are filled with many, many red speckles, some white speckles, and even some blue speckles.
Why would there be any blue speckles on a shirt which does not have the color blue anywhere? Why are all the black areas filled with red speckles? Is red underneath the black?
I don't want to be a complainer. I really don't. Is this just the limit of the technology?
Am I being too picky for a $15 shirt?
I looked at my other shirts, for example, The Raven Knocketh https://shirt.woot.com/offers/the-raven-knocketh, and the black is perfect and pure. Of course, that shirt has only black, which makes me think there is a technology or procedural problem printing clean black when the shirt has other colors.
The outline on this design is not a solid black that is on the raven design. The outline is more of a dark blue/gray color. With our digital printers, they print using a CMYK process that combine to make this dark blue color. This is why you can see the different colors when using a magnifier. With the raven, the color is pure black and only uses the black ink in the printer.
