  • Varnish weight

    Please forgive this newbe question: Does adding a heavy varnish add any weight to a printing job? How much? I can't add more than 0.3 ounces to this job.

    that's pretty tight. you're probably going to want to mock one up on the right paper (or pay your printer to do it), and see if there's any way they can give you an idea of whether or not it will add that much to it. i'm assuming it'll have to do with how heavy it's put on, but i can't imagine it adding too much weight to it.

    YMMV, though. talk to your printer.
    Remember: Wherever you go, there you are.

      Yes it will add weight, but...
      It depends on the size of the piece and how large the area of coverage is.
      You will need to talk to your Printer to find out the exacts (or close approximates)...

        Draw it as stroked arcs. Pathfinder does far more than connect or unite shapes. It also divides, crops and cuts with a mask. You want to divide everything then unite back together the bits so it looks...

        You are emphasizing teeth.
        Your doubled text is de-emphasizing the company name.

        Pathfinder as PD said. Create all of your shapes (don't worry about over and under yet) ... then select all and divide, then grab the "bits" that need to be connected and unite them.

        Feels very separated. No cohesiveness. It reads more like a poster than a logo.

        Less is more in a good logo. Needs to be more abstract. You want to be able to communicate the idea with the...

        The advice I got when I was in art school over 20 years ago was "don't stay here." But by the looks of the maps PD posted, there are very few places to relocate to.

        It's not impossible...
