    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'm not sure I fully understand the assertions made in that post, but for certain, changing the Document Color Mode in Illustrator doesn't change the colors of anything that's already on the artboard....

                Just a reminder here that this post by Key was made over 13 years ago, during the boom before the bust.
                Times (and prices) have changed a lot in that time.

                About the worst thing you can do with Illustrator is use the Color Mode to change stuff after starting your design.
                ALWAYS select your document color mode before you begin using Illustrator. Changing...
