Screen Printing Classes in Los Angeles: Establishing Your Art

Creating your artwork can be a confusing project for someone new to the screen printing industry; good news is McLogan’s Supply Academy Screen Printing 101 Classes have you covered. Take your ideas and turn them into a screen printed design. Screen Printing Classes 101 will teach you all the steps needed and what programs to use, so that you will work your way toward screen printing your artwork.¬†Screen printers create their artwork into one of two main categories: Vector Art or a Raster Image.Vector Art:Vector Art is the most common artwork used for spot color printing, where you are printing solid forms of color to create a design. With this type of printing you aren’t dealing with halftones, blending colors, you are literally just working with a single stamp of color. Spot color includes most logos (green Starbucks logo), fonts, and vector artwork. These types of designs can be made in CorelDRAW, Adobe Freehand, and Adobe Illustrator. You will also have the ability to adjust the size, and color to the whole artwork without it changing your design.

Raster Image:

A Raster image is much more pictorial than a Vector image. It’s full of color (pixels), halftones, and is printed by a four color process. These images are usually JPEG, GIF, TIFF and BMP. Adobe Photoshop and Coral PHOTO-PAINT are the programs best for designing these images.
