  • Having Trouble with Transparency? (Adobe Products)

    For important information on how to design, create pdfs, and print from Adobe products using transparency please read the technical bulletins at the bottom left of this page.

    Especially read Transparency iin Adobe Applications: A print Production guide.

    While these are specifically for CS3, the theory still applies.


    - When creating files for print that contain transparency, always contact the print vendor before starting to find out what they need you to do to avoid printing errors on the equipment they will be using. Transparency and flattening settings are very device dependent.

    - Transparency features such as DropShadow and Inner or Outer Glow are RASTER effects. If your raster effect resolution is set wrong, the image will not print correctly.

    - Be prepared to supply native files and all links and fonts.

    Thank you.

      This logo is way too complicated for use across different mediums. The drawing is too big, the text too small.

      It seems very strange to name a creative business "no thoughts".

      ^^As PD said above.

      Just think of it as a 4 page document. Most printers will want you to supply the artwork 1up with trim marks and bleed.

      Reply to Logo and Business Card feedback
      I'm confused, is one of these a logo and the other a business card? Because they look almost the same. They shouldn't look almost the same. A business card has a lot more information on it than a logo....

      You are among like-minded people. It's no coincidence. I think introverts gravitate towards visual art and writing art (presenting through recording media) whilst extroverts gravitate towards performing...
