Posterization
This is the conversion into two line shots, one for deep shadow, and one for midtones, and is used to add visual interest.
 
Quadtone
Use of four halftone screens scanned at different screen angles, and printed in four colors. The strength of the scan, the choice of ink colors and texture of paper provide tremendous options for various results from quadtones.
 
Six-color Process (Hi-Fi)
Process orange and process green is added to process cyan, magenta, yellow and black to extend the color palette, and to intensify color images.
 
Split Fountain
A split fountain uses two or more ink color in a single press fountain and lets the oscillation of the press blend them together. A full spectrum of color can be achieved at a one-color cost. Because of the "mixing" of inks, frequent wash ups are required with a split fountain.
