    Default 4c philly printer

    Hey,

    I just moved to Philly so haven't set up my press yet. I also don't have much experience printing 4-color work. I've got a commission for 6-8 designs and want a local printer (Philly or near proximity) so I can do press checks.

    Here are the specs.
    6-8 total designs (4-C process each, more if needed to really make the print perfect)
    25 prints each (I know it's low, but that's what the client wants)
    Printed on Coventry rag.

    I'll provide the digital art in photoshop. I can do the halftone work if you give me your specs. I can provide the mylar positives if that helps.

    *I need someone that can do high quality 4-color work. This is for a blue chip client so I can't afford to mess around. Be ready to provide examples of your work.

    Here's a link to one of the designs for reference. Imageshack - tamapmichigan1sm

    Thanks!
    Tim

    That's going to look like shit in CMYK. Halftones of maps = illegible. Unless you can find somebody to print at 100 lpi.

    I've tried to convince the client that this is really hard to screen print. They want the vibrancy that screen printing has. I wonder if it was printed giclee and then an overprint gloss was printed on top? Any suggestions?

    Also, does anyone know of a 100lpi screen printer within 100 miles of Philly?

    Thanks

    There's nothing really vibrant in that image.

    Edit: I can do 100 lpi, plus everything else your client could need, but I'm pretty busy. What's the timeline?

    The vibrancy of screen printing comes from NOT having to print CMYK. It comes from using vibrant spot colors.
