  • 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?

              Funny how you mention you didn't want it to read D-Chew cuz that is exactly what I got from it. More so with the first than the second.

              I sort of rather favor the second one anyway. It has...

              If you delete all unused colors out of your color palette, the printer can see at a glance what pantones are used in a document.


              Though it is nice to have a ''standards'' page if...

              I often do much the same thing. I'll even do it that way when sending files to printers -- just so that at a glance the printer can tell what colors are involved. The only problem I've found has nothing...

              Thanks for the feedback Buda; I'm using wordpress and I have a very fast connection at home. I stupidly thought wordpress was automatically compressing the images when uploaded. For the moment it is mostly...
