What is a Halftone?

A Halftone is a printing technique that uses dots of varying sizes to create the illusion of continuous tone images.

This method is particularly effective in capturing the nuances of photographs and intricate designs when only limited colors are available for printing. It’s widely used in newspapers, books, and various forms of advertising materials to add depth without the need for multiple shades of ink. In terms of advertising trends, brands are increasingly leveraging halftone techniques not just in traditional media but also in innovative outdoor and digital formats to grab viewer attention and enhance visual appeal. This technique continues to be a cornerstone in both artistic expression and commercial communication.
