|The first two printed versions that we rejected|
It took three (!) print runs to get the results we wanted. The first was printed on mint green paper that looked awful and the second on white, heavy-weight paper, but not using the updated pdf we sent. What I've learned from this process is: 1) screenprint does not create the grungy texture that a 'stamp like' process would normally create, so I had to add it in manually (as you can see in the closeups below) 2) Colors need to be 100% opaque, semi transparent layers should be used sparingly since it's printed as dots with large gaps of space. All in all, I'm very happy with the results, and just love the interaction that happens between the layers of color in the screenprinting process.
