Re: Blue Ribbon Appearance


Little disappointed in Woot.

My first entry " Blue Ribbon Formula... At Last!" got rejected because it "APPEARS to be more than 6 colors". I went back over the file... still only 4 colors in that design. Appearances can be deceiving! Thanks for taking away my votes.

So rather than removing color I added another. I guess it is an off week for the reject. Woot On!

Comment is too funny! I actually like your design better in green than the original blue. Keep up the great work wooter!

Are you using transparencies? We can't print transparencies or gradients, you need to convert them to halftones. If you're not using transparencies then I'm counting way more than 6 colors here. If you are already using halftones then they are way too small to see, let alone print.

Yes, there are transparencies in the design. Hours of design down the tubes... because of dots.

Maybe you'll read the rules first next time? Woot has guidelines for a reason, I'm sure we've got plenty of screenprinting people around here who could explain why those rules are important.
