  • Books on the Printing Process.

    He guys.

    I'm looking for some books that'd be a good resource for teaching me a bit more about the printing process. I know enough to keep me employed as a designer, but I want to build my repertoire. I want to be able to understand more of what our printers do and what they go through when he get a finished order back.

    "What sort of process" you might say. Well, I managed to find a book about plate lithography from the local library, so I guess I'm wanting to brush up about the more common processes used. I'm also always interested to read about the origins (no matter what the subject).

    Anyone know of any good books they could recommend?

              Well, who knows. They might have their reasons that would make sense if we knew them.

              You're right, though, it's their money and if that's what they insist they want -- despite your best...

              I'm grateful for the time both you spent to inform me and respect your expertise. Didn't mean to sound like I was disregarding what you shared. Just figure if it's not going to make much of a difference...

              Hmmm, good question. Probably not. Most generally recognized professions seem to have licensing requirements, though, so I guess my comments stem from designers being somehow excluded and the profession...

              No one gave me a solution seems like either way I would get similar results. I suggested the clients use the file we already have in hand and they insisted they wanted vector. I'm open to having the imaged...

              Ha! I sure wouldn't try it with somebody's face.

              I just happen to have the artwork for what I was talking about. It was part of a large outdoor display at a marina advising boaters about...
