Overprint is a printing technique where two or more inks are placed over the same area, which allows the ink colours to mix and create an additional hue. Creative artwork can be produced by overprinting a second image over an existing print using a different colour. Wherever the inks overlap, a third colour is produced according to the subtractive colour model. Typically the effect is produced manually using screenprinting techniques, but it can also be easily replicated in digital design software using the Multiply blending mode. In today’s inspiration showcase I present 25 stunning designs with colourful overprint effects that cleverly combine multiple artwork into one.
