  • 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?

              Thecreative
              I work as an in house graphic designer and happen to be the only GD on the marketing team. The struggle has been real as of late because my marketing manager has no clue about graphic design. Multiple...

              It's just as easy to say you've missed the point. You're using contest winning as a measure of logo design competence, but no amount of contest win constitutes successful logo design. That's why contest...

              Hotbutton & Printdriver,

              You're both missing the point that Nikko improved significantly over the course of a year, to the point of winning 5% on a logo design crowdsourcing site. I'm...
