It’s great to have opportunity to play with type and process. Having worked with Dots Printhaus I knew they would be up for trying out some different ideas. Various colour combinations were tried out. Some not so great. Our favourites are show here: Cyan, magenta and yellow – three colour split fountain (colours mixed directly on the screen). About 3 out of 8 pulls achieved a seamless gradient. Fluorescent orange on black offset overprint . Metallic gold and magenta offset overprint to try and make copper. Fluorescent orange with fluorescent pink split fountain – because we all love a fluoro and finally good old pure black on Plike.
