T-Seps Automated Color Separation Program
You'll wonder what you did without it!
T-Seps is an automated color separation plug-in for Adobe Photoshop (any version – Mac or PC) designed for garment screen printers. It is written by leading industry expert, Scott Fresener, and is based on his very popular industry standard program FastFilms – first introduced in 1999. In fact, if you heard FastFilms was great then you will love T-Seps. FastFilms and now T-Seps allow any size shop to create high-end color separations for light and dark shirts efficiently and quickly.
Now Two Versions of T-Seps!
We have standard T-Seps 2.0 that is compatible with the very old Photoshop 6.0 all the way to the latest CS6 in 32-bit and 64-bit mode. We did a nice upgrade with T-Seps 3.0 which is compatible with Photoshop CS6 and CC and we just released T-Seps 3.5.5 to work in the new Photoshop CC versions including the new CC 2017. T-Seps 3.0 and 3.5.5 look and function identical and have an easy-to-use graphic interface and a lot of new and improved routines. Both versions work on Windows XP (limited support), Vista, Windows 7, 8, 8.1 and Windows 10 and they work on all Mac computers with OSX 10.6 or higher. Read more about the differences between the two programs and how to upgrade from FastFilms or T-Seps 2.0 to T-Seps 3.0/3.5.5 HERE.
After just a couple of jobs you’ll wonder how you lived without it.
T-Seps is easy to use. Simply click a button and watch it create high-end channel separations in Photoshop. Take a few minutes to do minor tweaks and final adjustments and print film. The job proofs on the monitor the way it will print with dot-gain applied so there is no guessing.You also get FREE online, phone, and email support for one full year directly from Scott Fresener. Plus, the program comes with over 25 short training videos and a detailed Users Guide.
No guess work
In fact, T-Seps takes away all the guesswork. Not only does it separate but it also lets you use standard off-the-shelf plastisol ink colors; it tells you exactly what mesh count to use; it tells you the color sequence and press setup; it tells you the proper halftone angle and line count; and it teaches you how to do very high end printing! What more could you ask for? Its so easy, even beginners with limited Photoshop experience and homemade equipment can produce outstanding prints.

What makes T-Seps the best?
Color separation programs are not all the same. They are only as good as the person who developed the program and T-Seps is based on Scott Fresener's years of teaching and his intimate knowledge of Screen Printing. In fact Scott is a very active color separator and does literally thousands of separations each year. Photoshop is the software tool of choice for high-end separations and now it will be like having Scott sitting at your computer doing the separations for you! Besides being a highly respected industry leader, Scott has been a member of the Adobe Developer's Network.
In fact, Scott traveled the world teaching large licensed screen printers how to do color separations in Photoshop before he developed FastFilms in 1999 and
he actually taught the process years ago using the older Process Cameras. Things have certainly changed since then. Very few people know Photoshop like he does and here's your chance to put his expertise to use in YOUR shop.
Photoshop is now very easy to own
If you don't own Photoshop and felt it was simply too expensive – that has all changed with Adobe's change to a subscription only program. You can now get Photoshop and over seventeen Adobe Products – including Adobe Illustrator – for two computers for around $50 per month from www.CreativeCloud.com. This is a GREAT deal! Watch a short video on Creative Cloud HERE. You can download a 30-day free trial of Photoshop and then download a 20-day free trial of T-Seps HERE.
Create the image in Corel or Illustrator and use T-Seps to separate them
Are you a Corel Draw or Adobe Illustrator user wishing you could do this type of work? Vector programs just don't cut it for doing great underbases and working with pixel based images. Stop giving your customer boring images because you can't color separate them. It is time to add Photoshop/T-Seps to your art department. Read a little more about using vector programs with T-Seps HERE.
Even though the program is called T-Seps, it is a big brother to FastFilms which has sold over 8,000 copies and is used by printers large and small in over 75 countries! When you buy a shirt with a high end graphic on it – whether it be NASCAR, Disney, or the latest blockbuster movie – chances are the separations were done with FastFilms or T-Seps.

Buy from someone you know and trust!
When you invest in software like T-Seps you need to buy from someone you know and trust. Success breeds imitation and there are a number of similar programs out there that claim to be as good as FastFILMS/T-Seps. But don't let saving a few dollars tempt you to buy a program that is inferior and backed by little or no support. A program is not a "bargain" if the separations don't work at press and you spend hours making adjustments. The quality of a separation program is directly based on the knowledge of the person who designed it. Some applications are even being sold by ink companies! Do you really think an ink company should be selling separation software? Trust your instincts and buy from someone you know and trust.
