    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!
            Good thing I'm not Kool though.

                I've had clients like that. The only solution is to fire them and get other work, I'm afraid.

                I accept your apology.

                You're incorrect.

                They're wrong.

                Anyone who's done logo design for small businesses, such as those that would use a crowdsourcing site, would know that brand development (analytical marketing is best done by a marketing analyst, not...

                I've been doing my fair share of thinking about starting a magazine for a niche market I'm interested in. Gaming. Even more specifically, competitive gaming.

                Now, it seems to me that people...
