    Default CMYK printing

    I'm thinking I want to try my first CMYK print. I'll let the lab handle the film output and the color seperations, but i know they'll want some basic information about how to give me a film for each color. These are questions I'm not sure I can answer.

    What do I need to know, or better yet can someone point me in the direction of a good resource? i've dug through the forums and found some good stuff to know (i.e. order to print colors in, adivse on sharp clean squeegees etc...)

    I'm sure I can handle the exposure and the actual printing as long as I know I have a good set of films.

    Any help would be completely rad.

    I unno if you're talking about angles and line frequency, but here you'll find your answer if you read closely enough.

    Good call, this has some stuff to get me started. Angles and Line freq. are things I need to educate myself on more.
    Thanks!

    I just read that thread start to finish.

    It's like a bunch of fish flopping around in a barrel, then Goodtimes just walks in and puts everyone out of their misery like a boss.

    Good read.

    That really is a truckload of information - I think I got the seperations worked out on my own last night. My next question is ink reccomendations. Anybody got any preference? Who makes a good set of CMYK inks?
