I am preparing a complex artwork for print in illustrator which includes:
textures, overprinting, overlapping colors, gradients, blend modes and transparencies
I would like to prepare these files for print I know that I will need to flatten the image and rasterize.
I have also read that I might need to expand and rasterize areas of the artwork where there are overlapping textures and transparencies.
I would like to know to correct method that I would need to use to make sure that my artwork is ready to send to print.
I would appreciate some help with this process.
