      Do you mean how to do the designs in the slip used to color the face of the tile when it is fired? Or print them.

      Printing can be done as a dye-sub process or as a UV flatbed process.

      HOWEVER
      There are certain wearability and food safety issues you need to know about.
      -Dye sub or printed tiles should not be used outdoors. There have been too many reports of almost immediate fading and no cases of tiles lasting much more than 5 years without significant fading.
      -They can't be used for flooring or high traffic areas like hallway walls.
      -Cleansers that can scratch the surface are bad for printed tiles.
      -Exposure to heat and grease aren't good for them either.
      -Some inks may contain chemicals you don't want to have in contact with food.

      Dye sub is more common. UV flatbed is more of a short term usage.

              I've got a client that designed his own logo and simply wanted me to put it together. He only drew the outline and told me what colors to use. But I'm not sure if I can send this to him. Should I tell...

              Thanks for your feedback!
              I understand what you are saying. I just think i might be a monomaniac. I have no interest in building in other forms of graphic design. I will probably have a bad time....

              Hi, I'm very new to design and just starting out, so I'd appreciate some critique/advice/guidance on some book covers I made for a friend, and how I can improve as a designer.

              Well, for one thing, logo design is a terrible entry point for a new designer trying to find clients and establish themselves. There are excellent designers with years of experience who avoid logo design...

              I do not have a degree in Graphic Design. My goal is to work freelance.
              This is what I am scared of since the country I live in does not respect design that much. You can rarely make a living out...
