    Default Learning about Seps

    I'm interested in learning how to professionally do colour separations. I see a lot of tutorials about the actual screen printing process, but not so many on seps. I have a book coming in the mail that should help; aside from that, are there any threads in this section that might help a beginner? Any books you could recommend? Or tutorials available that are really helpful?

    Thanks!

    Steve

    So like...one color goes over another color and stuff and sometimes they touch and sometimes they don't. Maybe there's another color. Who knows! You could add another color I guess. Anything can happen. Try dots and stuff!

    If you want to learn how to do it...then figure it out. You'll retain more. Understand the most basic parts of the process and devise your own solutions for the complicated stuff. There are no wrong answers if it looks right.

    If you want to be able to do this professionally you have to learn to be consistent. You need to know that when you do this that will happen...every time. Its easy to learn if you work in a shop with the same printers and inks and press...but a nightmare otherwise.

    Its a pain in the ass. I avoid smaller shops and try to stick with companies where I can see that the quality of their prints is on par with the quality of the seps I provide. And I still have to be crazy thorough. Sometimes, just to cover my ass, I write a fucking term paper of instructions and specs for each print, so that it's not my fault if they fuck up the print or don't follow the instructions.

    Great advice, thanks Richie. I'll probably have more detailed questions in the future.
