While most printing today is accomplished via a four-color process, there is a wide range of practical and creative options available when you add an additional color or varnish. This course teaches how these additional colors are made and shows some examples of finished projects that use these colors. Author Claudia McCue also dives directly into Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign, and other creative apps and shows how to build documents correctly for printing.
In this course, I'll be showing you some techniques for creating artwork and images that use spot colors and I'll also show you how to create artwork for varnishes using Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign. So, to make the most of those chapters, you should already be reasonably comfortable in those programs. And of course, you'll find lots of great essential training courses here on lynda.com, to help you learn more about those applications. In addition, if you'd like to know more about print production in general, you might enjoy my print production fundamentals course.
