You will start learning what the final art is, who needs it and what it is for. You will analyze some samples and Chack will tell you how the results were obtained in each case.

You will know in detail everything you need to consider before sending your file to print and Chack will tell you about the color profiles in Illustrator and Photoshop, the resolution and the output formats.

Once your project is ready for printing, you will analyze the color tests, the dummy and you will make the necessary verifications of your final work.

Later, you will know the three most used printing methods today: digital offset, conventional offset and plotter. Chack will give you tips that will help you choose the most suitable medium for each project.

It will also show you the reaction of the same design when printed on different types of paper and you will experiment with designs in RGB that you will later turn into CYMK for printing.

You will learn to work with four colors and with special inks.

To finish, Chack will explain what specifications you should send to the printer so that your designs have the results you expect once printed.

From a single art, with Illustration, photography and text, you will adapt and give output to three types of printing: digital offset, traditional offset and plotter.
