Designed in CoreDRAWx3, ( no plug-ins were used ) printed with ColorControl, default screens(55)YMC.
Summa Intermediate with Lam.

I originally hand painted this design about 10 years ago....then lost touch with this guy and noticed he had a new people doing his lettering (badly)....no biggy he was probably trying to save a buck. Funny how things come around. :)

Looks Great Muts! Were you experimenting with the Intermediate? How e-z was the install w/ the laminate. It takes talent do design stuff w/o the pre-made fills that are out there. Not knocking them, there's a time/place for them. I like it!

exactly... install was no issue. I even did one wet it was around 40 degrees out no problem there either. There were 3 trucks total.

I like it has a very "soft hand" to it. (I think it's fdc 4200 series.) The release liner does seem a bit thicker....

The only thing - the black seems to blush. You can polish it away or laminate and it disappears...

....what laminate did you go with. I bought a sample of Laminex cold laminate and I am wanting to try it.

How long?

Hello Muts.....

I'm still on the fence, but I think I'm going to get a DC4sx
this spring.

How long does it take to get as good as you with DC"X" printing?
I mean, learning dpi's and lpi's and such.

It's different from inkjet printing, isn't it?


Just being a little unserious here, but isn't SX too close to SUX
for comfort????

Just a stupid little marketing question...

1 year, that doesn't mean you'll get crummy results it just means you'll know exactly what to expect with your print files....what works and what doesn't... plus you have this place to ask real questions :)

yes, but better in many ways....postscript has been around along time. I honestly do not care for inkjet dithers, fmx diffusion etc. to me it's not professional and looks like something you buy at Staples :)
