    I designed the one titled "screen shot 2014" Bonnaroo_logo was not designed by me, clearly. I have posted that image so that users can give me an honest opinion of whether or not it's too similar...

  • Buying Cutom Die Cuts...

    Is it normal for custom Dies to only work on certian types of Material?

    i.e. if i paid to have a die made to cut Clear PS Label stock would i have to buy a new die to have it cut Holographic Film or Mylar?

    if this is normal, whats the reasoning for it? material thickness?

    this is normal in the flexo printing industry - the blade of the die has to be set at a certain angle to cut the intended material - the hardness of the die also is different when cutting different substrates. if you have a die already made for cutting mylar and you want to cut paper with it, you'll damage the cutting blade and it will need to be sent out to be retooled

        Welcome to the GDF prepress goddess. I hope you stick around. Silence usually has some good flexo questions and they often go unanswered. We need someone with your expertise around here!

          glad to help out - if i can get some designers thinking about how things work on press - it will really help them to maximize the abilities of the presses the work is going to instead of working against the limitations of the final production process.

          don't be afraid to talk to your printer's prepress department - it's better to identify a problem early on before the deadline looms on the horizon

            I think you will like it here, PPG! We have some excellent prepress folks who visit this forum... and lots of designers here have some prepress experience, too.

            We appreciate the vast knowledge that prepress folks have to have. Great to have you on board!
