I would love to see a close-up of the halftones as I am a novice at this part of the process and can never get the colors to look as nice as this (especially at the resolution used by woot in printing the shirts). Any tips or hints as to the specifics would be greatly appreciated.
I am by no means a half tone master but I can tell you what I do. I start with a base color, like in this one I essentially used primary colors red, blue, and yellow and used them to make the colors green, purple, and pink. I would make the candy blue then make a duplicate layer in yellow at 50% fill which would make it appear green. To half tone I'd select the yellow layer and copy and paste into gray scale document and paint bucket the yellow (now gray) layer black and take down the fill to 50% before doing the bitmap route of making the half tones. Then I change the color from black to yellow once in place in the artwork. I probably do it a super weird/long way but it's what works best for me.
Here is a closer look:
