Intro to Prepress Workshop

New to printing? Designing for print? This three day workshop is geared towards graphic designers & graphic artists that are either working as prepress operators or designing for print. The workshop starts off with attendees going on press to print a job, where they will learn about platemaking, ink formulation, press basics and more. Print samples will be analyzed and measured. For the remainder of the workshop, attendees go hands-on with the tools available in Photoshop, Illustrator, and other prepress software needed to prepare artwork for printing. On the final day, after making adjustments to the art, attendees will go back on press to see the result of good prepress work. *A working knowledge of Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop is required!
