A discussion of the differences between digital printing, print on demand services, direct-to-garment printing and traditional screen printing services. I cover how the printing methods affect the cartoon logo I create for you, and why you might want to choose a certain style of art depending on the primary method you intend to use the final artwork.
A brief discussion of CMYK (printed) and RGB (web/computer screen) color spaces, including why the colors you see on the computer monitor don’t look as bright when the logo is printed. I also touch on halftones.
A cartoon illustration & design project for a friend’s party required the resulting art to be suitable for reproduction on a photocopy machine. After some trial, error, Google search, trial, error, Google search, trial, error I discovered the magic combo that allows you to create a halftone in Photoshop for an image and print it out on your inkjet printer so the art will be perfect for photocopying.
This technique is perfect for flyers, newsletters or any other short-run printing needs you have where the cheapness of a photocopy is desired, but so are grayscale images.
