I do color seps all the time, and it seems to me Woot as the print shop would want control over the halftones you print. Don't you get people using a lot of weird angles, like 90 degrees?
Anyway, if the file is set up as a DCS 2.0 with each channel assigned a PMS spot color, can you use it?
Also, what mesh counts do you typically use? I would like to avoid moire causing LPIs (e.g. 52 LPI on a 156 mesh)...
We will not accept a multichannel file for DERBY entries. Those things have to be relatively easy to color sep since they come in at the last minute from anyone and everyone. But you might contact the art directors for a daily sale. If we have time to study the file and it meets the requirements for printing, perhaps we can run it. Not my decision to make though.
Believe it or not, most people submit 22.5 or 67.5 angles on all their colors, which works great.
We use 30, 60, 110, 156, 230, 285, 305, 355 mesh. If I have my way, I print with a 45 lpi, prefer 35 lpi or COARSER.
