    Unhappy Watching a grown man cry...or, never tape halftones together!

    I'm seriously depressed.

    We just finished a poster for Of Montreal and EVERYTHING went wrong. First, my printing partner got deathly sick, then I got deathly sick so the thing was designed in about 3 bleary-eyed hours. Not my style. It was also our first print with our new 305 screen so we wanted to try a tiny halftone. The image was big so I printed out two transparencies and taped them together. There was an overlap of maybe one centimeter. For real.



    Goddamnit! Nice sweater you moron!

    So, anyway, don't do that.

    a. I've only tried that once and I didn't like it.
    b. Meh, it's part of the process. Embrace it.
    c. 305? why!?
    d. This probably looks better than you think. Post the whole thing.

    yeah, if that overlapped dark area is only 1 cm, it's not that bad. i do it all the time. you'll get used to it.

    Then post a screenshot of the .psd on gigposters.com instead of a photo of the print so everyone will just assume it turned out perfect.

    It's the 'charm' of the process. I like flawed printing, it adds character. If i wanted a 'perfect' print, i'd go and get it done digitally.
