welcome to GDSE! For what you need, I would suggest using masks In order to do this, the workflow that I would suggest is; Open your file (good start) ;) Make a new layer (bottom right of the layer panel) Hit 'U' to access the shape tool - you'll want to select the ellipse tool as below; Holding SHIFT and dragging your cursor will enable you to make ...

You can open the image in Adobe Photoshop, edit it and resave as a new format. However, the editing part is tricky. Depending on the quality of the original logo, you may have to nearly redo the thing to get a crisp, high res final product.

I'm not a pro when it comes to photoshop but i would suggest you try working on an canvas thats half (8 x 6) of the size & set the DPI @ 600. This way your ram isn't getting drained processing something so large. Once you're done doing what you want to do you can simply bring the size back up and it'll be at 300dpi. For future reference, I'd suggest ...

How best to emphasize a portion of your paper? All printers can easily reproduce grey text. The issue with grey text is that of sufficient contrast to be legible and easily readable. Legibility will be an issue where symbols are used. Mathematic is heavy with problematic situations.Here's where you should look for them Superscripts Subscripts Limits (the ...

Is it OK to use gray font for the parts of math proofs I remove but retain? Not sure how a graphic designer could answer this. If somebody print my PDF, will gray fonts work well with all modern printers? Yes, generally speaking if you have enough contrast a printer will be fine printing gray colors. Also which RGB value do you suggest for "...

They will likely print at 200 or 100dpi, depending on the type of print format. I would call the printer and ask for their file specifications as the person stated above.

Talk to the printer (the person not the machine). They will likely tell you what scale and/or resolution to work at. You most likely do not need to work at 300ppi at full scale. It is more common for large format printing to work at a smaller scale or lower resolution (refer to point 1.) Read through the answer here: I need to print an image a certain size. ...

Gradients have always been an issue for us on our Rolands. The ripping software just doesn't interpret them correctly. I've found the easiest way around this is to hide your cut line, rasterize your artwork at the resolution and color space of your choice, and show your path again. Now your artwork is a high resolution bitmap under a vector cut line, ...

As you guessed it, 5-10 or even 12 color printing involves using additional inks beyond the original CMYK inkset to produce a larger gamut of colors. However, this will have absolutely no bearing whatsoever on how you produce a document as a graphic designer. These are strictly in place for the printer to hit a larger number of colors that are out of the ...

There is no easy way to do this! While it is possible to insert pages to print a comma separated list of pages in the range textbox. So in this hypothetical case you could type: 1,1, 2,2,2,2,2, 3,3,3,3,3,3, ... 24,24,24,24,24, 25,25,25 Where you would fill in the ... with all your pages. Unfortunately, this will not work for the page range you suggested ...

I already worked with large banners and you should not use Photoshop in this one. If you're going to manipulate photos or images, do it on Photoshop then proceed to work on your banner on Illustrator. If your banner requires a lot of text or reading I recommend InDesign. Large scale prints of photos needs higher definition but you can work between 60dpi and ...

Echoing the first answer, I would design to scale, and in Illustrator (especially if you will be incorporating a lot of graphics). But ask the printer what their setup preferences/delivery requirements are.

Set up your file to scale, maybe 10:1 If possible, use vector graphics and not pixels Use InDesign, or maybe illustrator. Photoshop is not a layout tool. If you must use photography, 72ppi is a good guide for large scale outdoor imagery. Good design beats resolution every time. Print out your design draft, tape it to your wall and stand back to review the ...

Here is the dependence that answer your question. Vertical axe is the optimal image resolution and horizontal axe is the distance intended to look on the image. Red curve is for the people with myopia, green is for the people with normal vision and blue is for the hyperopia case. Practically I never used for such big format the resolution more than 72 ppi.

It was probably printed in white first and then in black over it. This is usually done to print light colors on dark shirts and still have them appear bright. In case of printing black it's obviously unnecessary.

You can't easily do this 'without creating another slider tab', but... if you create a new, temporary slider tab at the point where you wish to sample the colour, then drag the colour from the 'colour' palette (which will now be the colour of the new tab that you just created) to the tab that you wish to recolour and then delete the tab that you just created ...

If this is thermal transfer printing then it will look like this on any shirt that is not either white or black. And each one of them require different transfer film for that particular color. This white noise would be not noticeable on white shirt but on grey it is visible. The way to solve this would be to not use any other way of blending apart from ...

I'm sorry but It is not clear what the problem is. Take a new photo without the flash, stand next to a window without direct sunlight. I do not know if I am seeing reflections, if the shirt has a white base. But a basic problem could be that the worker did not apply enough ink, or pre-spreaded the ink into the silk even and smooth. I am stealing this ...

If the pdf is self contained and, well prepared it should be no issues. It is a common practice when making layouts of magazines where peolpe send de adds. Edited: Always there are things that could go wrong. But make a test, prepare some PDF, make a layout, insert them and at the end, prepare another PDF with the other PDFs inside. If you can see it ...

It has to do with the size of papers available. There are more cheap print shops/copy shops with capability for smaller paper sizes because there is more demand for it. So if your printer prints on A3 medium then it can be folded into a portrait A4, if cut in half its a landscape A5. Many office level printers can do this but printing on bigger papers ...

You need to profile both. 1) The basic idea is that you buy or rent one hardware like http://www.colormunki.com/ 2) You follow instructions on calibrating your monitor, the hardware analizes patches of color the inner software generates and adjust the output accordingly. 3) You print a sample of color patches provided with the hardware's software, scan ...

You can achieve this with offset or silk screen or even most other printing methods. You'll need to print the pink as a solid color (eg. Pantone Uncoated, no screen, no cmyk). Usually the printing colors are not opaque, so the cardboard will be 'tinted' not laquered. It's not complicated, but always talk to your printer (the man, not the device) to make sure ...

A bad news If you did not used separated channels for each ink, you need to do it again. If you are using layers you have no real pantone information, you just have a RGB file with colors "simmilar" to a pantone. My workflow I never send the Multichannel, but a composition on a PDF file. The way I prepare is puting a grayscale image, but converted into a ...

I would place the logo in a white container having the shape of these on the background (the white ones) and I would definitely change the outline from black to background color. That way you'd achieve both better connection between the logo and your design and a nice, simple stand-out logo.

No, that is not how printing with Pantone colors works. You can't simply select a Pantone color and use it as you would any other color as there is no way for the printer to know that it should be printed using a different ink, it will be separated to CMYK inks the same as everything else. If you open the Channels panel in Photoshop you will see channels ...

To best see how it will print merge (flatten) all layers in the manner and order to preserve the look you want to achieve and then change it to grayscale. Printing in pantone (I understand you will use one colour?) will use only one channel.

You should definitely add an outline (below the black one to create contrast) with a bright and light color that will maximize the number of occasions when your logo is the main point of view. Then they might even look at its details.

If you want to get rid from eps file. Then you can simple merge that eps file. After this there is no need to keep your linked attach file. Or you can convert your eps files to tiff format.


1

Or you could also try using this same method but using a big white transparent stripe instead of ovale. You can also add an outline (a thick one) that would take the very background color.

I would try applying outline to it, for example with the color of the outline in logo above. Try different colors - maybe focus on lighter ones.

I believe you would find that a disc producer system is much more cost efficient and gives good enough results if you are really a print design hobyist. I suppose you would want to be able to print different types of artwork on your CDs. I have worked for a company where we printed on CDs and DVDs with six-colour inkjet Epson (can't remember the exact model)...

The big question here is quantity. If you are not printing many at a time or your artwork changes often it will be more cost effective for you to go with the Epson Discproducer or a Microboards printer. The Microboards printers that I have are reengineered HP inkjets and do a great job for small quantity runs. If you need a large quantity, I'd go with Cai ...

There are several issues here. The "damage" is aparently already done. There is no real damage. EPS is an old format but widley supported. Yes, there are better options to save transparent bitmaps. For RGB files PNG and PSD. For CMYK TIF and PSD. Regarding the compression there are several ones on each format. On TIF just do not use JPG compression. ...

Adobe Creative Suite, since it's beginnings, was optimized to integrate InD, AI and PS. When using InDesign, the best way to place images with a transparent background is to simply save your PSD file as a PSD making sure the background is deleted and you see the transparency grid. That's it, no need for a clipping path, or to save as TIFF (it will not work ...

EPS files are typically used for vector images as far as I know. I wouldn't choose EPS for dealing with photo transparencies though. Try using TIFF or PSD instead. It would be so much easier on the program.

If these are what you claim they are then you have several problems. Your printers resolution plays a important part. The underlying offset on printer plays a part. It would be better to let the RIP engine do the halftone. There are several reasons for this but mainly because with vectors your decoupled with the printers grid. Even if you get the ...

In order to appreciate how a printed job will compare to your production ink jet print, laser print, dye sub print, etc., you will have to ask your printer for a "contract proof." It will be an additional cost that should be included in the job quotation. It is false economy to cut this to save production expenses. A contract proof is a legal document, a ...
