COURSE is fine!!??!!

27 Jan

Fine screen litho is great but a really nice design feature, for the right project,  is to use course screens . . . .

As you are probably aware,  ‘The Way of Dayfold’  (TWoD!!) is printing at much higher screens than the standard (it’s a historical, fine art thang!). This finer screen process gives fantastic results and produces more clarity and detail than the norm . . . got to be a good thing eh??

However, printing with courser screens can also give nice results.

War on Want Annual review front

This is a job that has been printed at 85lpi  YES 85!!!!! its almost like printing with p’taters!!

The nature of this job really lent itself to printing this way.

As you would expect, it’ printed on an uncoated stock . . . 9 Lives Offset – 100% PCW recycled – PaperCo

inner spread

CMYK throughout. A5 format, 20pp.

The use of different screen resolutions could help ‘add’ to a project . . . the shots here don’t show the ‘courseness’  in its best light –  if you would like to see a real copy of this or other course screen projects, or even examples of ‘TWoD’, please let us know. (  TTFN!!
