    Default Pre production help

    i posted this in general a few weeks ago and got a lot of flack about setting it up wrong. ive never done anything with a blend on paper screenprinting before and i really want to do this as an art print...

    is there a better and more consistent alternative than fading black to nothing...and fading gray to nothing up in order to make that background blend? im looking to try to keep this 3 colors, straight Black and Two Different greys. if more colors or needed...give me some input.



    the print would be big, 10x22. would making it smaller help any? my main concern is banding... any help would be much appreciated.

    color 2 - light grey 255m
    color 3 - Darker grey 255m
    color 4 - Black 255m

    it'd be a piece of cake to print, everything can overprint and llok all clean.

    you had told me the size of it was an obstacle. but if i go with those 4 colors at that size ill be safe?

    if its true ill be looking to place an order with you asap. do you do runs under a 100 though? id probabaly want to size it down to print on the 9x24 if im gonna with 4 colors. you can pm if you dont wanna discuss it here..

    I don't currently do orders under 100, after we get our smaller press set up and runnig again we will start doing small runs. For a smaller run try Platmium Rich at http://www.luckybunny.net.

    why couldn't you just do black halftone over a grey paper for the background? just cause you don't want the halftone look?
