  • Hand stamping over 4-colour process print run

    Hi Everyone,

    I've come to pick your collective brain again. I'm doing the design for a 7 inch vinyl single, press run of 600. We want to embelish it beyond 4 colour-process but there isn't a budget for die-cutting, embossing etc. I had the idea that i could design a sleeve with a process illustration printed on it and that we could hand stamp over the illustration with a one colour ink to add some depth.

    I can get the stamps made,but I'm unsure about what ink to use and how to have the sleeve itself printed so there won't be any issues with warping, colour bleed, etc. Its for commercial sale, so I don't want to bollocks it up. If any one has any experience with this sort of thing, I'd really appreciate some advice.

    thanks!

    Thanks PrintDriver. These are images downloaded from Ancestry.com and show census forms etc. I'll contact them and see if they can help.

    Monitors are sort of a matter of opinion.
    I do all my pre-press work on not so expensive Viewsonic monitors in a dual monitor setup. I already know that for print, my monitor will not accurately...

    You would get point-type (broken up bits of type) is if you upgraded in the meantime. Illustrator has the most awful habit of converting lesser versions to point type UNLESS you click the Yes button when...
