How Detailed can you get? [SCREEN PRINTING]

Hey everyone.

I tried searching around for this but found Diddly. So If anyone has any experience in making Graphics for Screen Printing…

How detailed can your graphic be? i understand that you cant really have gradations, i was wondering how small can the details be?

I have to make a chrome Rim/Wheel. So making it look shiny with only B&W is a little hard.

BTW I have about 1.5’’ square to work with. And Im using illustrator to get a clean cliparty type of look. like the little Wingdings characters.

Thanks All,
