Daguerreotype to Digital - Thoughts on what constitutes true art.

Digital Press Tips - Design for Digital

When printing on a digital press here are a few things to be aware of, adjust your design accordingly to optimise your print output. 

1. Gradients and large areas of solid colour do not print very smoothly, please add some noise to ensure a good print. You can also ask us to use Light Cyan and Light Magenta this will smooth the print but won’t be ideal for corporate colour and graphics, so its best for photographic work.

2. Fine text. For ultra fine text please use either black, or one of the other process colours, Cyan, Magenta or Yellow. The screening on the indigo makes fine text on business cards a little “fluffy” when using a mix of colours.

3. Fine lines. Again, use process colours, same problem, the screening makes fine detail work less clear than traditional Litho.

4. Try and avoid printing solid black on a cover of a book as this shows finger prints and marks very quickly.

Hope this helps.

Anonymous asked: I want to print on Conquerer Smooth Wove Brilliant White 300g/m, Fords Blotting Paper White 140g/m or Environment Wove Ultra Bright White 324g/m... Do you have anything similar??

Also I want to print a booklet of 10 pages, but I don't want the stapled or wire bound booklets, it needs to be professionally done... any suggestions??

Hi there,

We can offer a perfect bound booklet. The inners should be 160gsm matt, perhaps our new Hahnemeuhle Brut would be best. Please come in and see the options available. Or drop me a mail on jon@wetink.co.za and I can provide more details.

Anonymous asked: How much will it cost for three 8"x12" color prints on fine art paper? Its for a college assignment

Hi there, the prints will be R83.00 Incl VAT each. I have quoted you on Hahnemeuhle German Etching 310gsm paper. There are other options such as printing on our press but it really depends on the definition needed.

Cheers
