comment Photoshop 7 weird behaviour when holding mouse button
Photoshop 7 is definitely not supported on Windows 8 (or Windows 7, for that matter). I'm surprised it runs at all, frankly.

comment Printing: Opacity color or transparency in Abode Illustrator
Scott's answer is an excellent guide. Make sure that your blue really is a single color (not a CMYK color) that will use only a single plate on press. Check your separations preview to be certain. Also, don't use Pantone Reflex Blue -- it's a very popular choice, but it's a nightmare on press because it takes a very long time to dry and has a strong tendency to smear.

You'll have to give a little more detail. There isn't enough information here for anyone to understand exactly what it is you're asking.

comment 100% True Black problem in Illustrator
Their FAQ includes this instruction: "With the water-based inks we use, you can achieve millions of beautiful colors. Because of our digital process, there are no caps on how many colors you can use. For the best results, and to be able to use the Spoonflower Color Guide and Spoonflower Color Map, please use the RGB color space from the beginning of the design process to the end." They would want an RGB(0,0,0) black rather than anything in CMYK.
