    Question Angles for halftones?

    I want to start experimenting with printing process colors and halftones. I've done a dozen or so print jobs with just flat colors, so I've got the basics down. I've tried searching for the old threads with tips on this stuff, but I have either not found what I was looking for or was confused by the advice.

    Here's the details:
    I have 230 line screens.
    I remember the stuff about ellipses and 10-40 lpi halftone conversions and printing YMCK.
    I'm (obviously) printing on paper.

    So what angles should I set my halftone seps to for the process colors?

    Thanks guys. Love you fo-evs.

    PS Whoever redid the interface, nice job. The forums could use a tad bit of work (the user name area on each post seems huge), but otherwise it looks great.

    51-53 degrees works real well.

    They can't all be at the same angle, right?
