    Default Omaha prints

    Hey everybody. I love process threads so I thought I'd do another one. I made this 9 color print a year or so ago. There's a building in downtown Omaha called the Riley building and this hand painted sign is on the side of it. Done in the 1980's. After seeing a short film about NYC building painters, I was inspired to try to do this print. I've printed a ton of simulated process tshirts but have never tried a print on paper. Let alone one I separated myself. After a few months of playing around with the seps, I decided to go for it. Anyway, here's some photos of the process.

    18X24. 100 lb white. 195s and 230s. Dither diffusion.

    1st color: brown



    2nd color: red



    3rd color: orange



    4th color: cream


    5th color: tan




    6th color: blue split fountain




    7th color: light grey




    8th color: dark grey




    9th color: black





    Final print:


    I seriously never would have attempted something like this without GP and the insane amounts of wisedom on these boards. I've learned more lurking around here than any screenprinting shop I've worked at. So thanks.

    Nice work! Good to see some folks come from the dark side of apparel and do some great work on flatstock.

    Needs more trapping to look clean. I wouldn't have even bothered with a bit map dither for most of this. Otherwise nice

    Thanks guys. Yeah, what I learned through this process was that I should have started with a lighter color like cream or light grey as an underbase and built it up from there. It would have allowed me to trap better too I think. At the merchandising company I used to work for, the separator would start with brown for some reason and its sort of ingrained in me. Well....not anymore. Might try another photo print the first of the year.
