  • Manually separated

    I am patting myself on the back today after manually separating from scanned negs. My client only had an old set of separated negs that had been used in the past to create his logo. No original art and no digital files.

    The problem was that the art was 2 color, partially a screened grayscale and partially solid color.

    The headache was separating the grayscale that was tightly registered to the solid color fonts. Ugh! and then blurring the grayscale without affecting anything else so that it wouldn't get a moire effect. To top it off, the grayscale then had a second grayscale gradient in another color to tint over the black.

    Anyway, after 3 hours, I managed to get all separated and registered and ready to go to a digital rip for re-screening.

    I like challenges and puzzles, but this one will keep me for a while.

    Could you have scanned the stuff in, then just re-drawn them in Illustrator?

      this is how EVERYTHING was done in the old days. Took DAYS for jobs to get completed, and that was after approval!

          Among many other things, consider the color of your font.

          Helpful comments -- thanks to all of you. My advice to my friend was to try CC for the trial period, then decide on CC or version 6. A bit stubbornly (in my opinion) she is holding out for now and searching...

          Comment on Charge Tax on Top of Flat Rate?

          Thank you. It's a good point that it's expected nowadays. I'll charge the tax on top of the flat rate and discuss it with the client when I send him the first invoice.

          I've always charged clients hourly and charge the Sales & Use Tax on top of that.

          Just picked up a new client and we worked out a flat rate (x amount per design regardless of time)....
