Let me just start with saying I am really a beginner printing wise :)
Client wants a logo to be screen printed on apparel. For the time being he will print it on vinyl and later he will do some screen printing. Logo has gold circle and green icon inside the circle.
Currently what I want to do is like pick some Pantone green for an icon, use PMS 871 C for a gold circle, make bleed and margin and send away as PDF.
- Can I just use CMYK instead of Pantone?
- Can object on object (green on gold in this case) cause some issues when printing, I should be aware of?
- So printing some CMYK gradient would just turn out terrible?
- Also in any case I understood that for screen printing I would have to do color separation in Illustrator?
