    Hey,

    Iím extremely new to prepress and I know maybe a touch of the basics. I hear a lot of you guys saying working at a print shop is one of the best things you can do for yourself as a designer.

    I really want to get a good understanding for this stuff. I feel so lost on this forum sometimes when you guys talk about this stuff. Example spot colors and gamut are a coupleÖ. I feel I could learn so much more from this forum if I only new what these things meant.

    Do you guys know any good books, or websites that can help me out?

    Thanks

      You can learn a ton from this site. The library section features a pre-press dictionary.

            I just wouldn't try to compete with Morea if I were Kool!

                I believe (not sure) that you might still be able to outright buy CS6 directly from Adobe, but you had to physically call them and process it somehow over the phone (and they may discourage you every...

                Thank you, I'm glad you like them.

                I am considering using a different color for the portrait and the background, but I'm not sure yet how to manage it.

                These will be produced on an offset printer with a spot resolution of 1200 lpi. The plan is one spot color on each card, with no tints.

                I decided to give this a go. I think I prefer the original pattern, but the results are here for you to decide for yourself.

                Unless you find a CS6 the answer would by no. You are at the mercy of your subscription to Adobe.
                Also no telling how much longer they will support CS6.

                The fee still works out to about...
