This compelling infographic is a big help when you need a quick reference of printing processes and how each of the most popular methods relate to your graphics. It starts by describing the processes and typical usage as well as if it is compatible with textured or detailed graphics. Continuing with the tradition, it follows with describing your color obtains when using 4 color process (CMYK), spot color (PMS), Foil Stamping, Embossing, and Debossing. And what good would it be to talk about these methods without mentioning paper stock? Any good print designer will know how each of hers or his graphics will be affected when ink or hot stamp hits the trees (save the trees, please print on recycled paper :)! And finally, the infographic delivers a photograph of each method designed on a folder.
Enjoy and please share :)
