Yesterday we started giving birth to my second series of angels.
I never got used to this part of my work, it is too exciting! When the first samples come out, it allways gives me the shivers. The reason is: I used to print in process (CMYK) colours. This process needs balancing the four colours, which is a hell of a job for my work. I have spent days and days next to the machines, trying to get the colours right. So stressful!
But this time it was different: I have worked with solid Pantone colours! It basically means that you choose colours in your chart and exactly that colours come out on the samples. No endless balancing, checking samples, being puzzled about too much black or blue in the red and the yellow. Solid colours mean: what you see is what you get. Hurray!
Ok, the process is more expensive, but it saves me 20 wrinkles, 35 stress nots and at least 1 migraine attack per new article... From now on: solid colours it will be!
