Tip #2

When printing halftone images, try using glossy paper instead of matte paper. Here's a photo of two halftone prints (from a photopolymer plate!):

These were printed on two sides of the exact same paper. The one in the upper left was on the matte side while the one on the lower right was on the glossy side. All other factors were exactly the same: same press, same ink, same amount of packing. I still can't believe the difference in quality between the two prints. The next time you want to print a halftone image, consider getting some glossy paper to test out!

I hope everyone has a great xmas!
