The Color “Done”

As you work with commercial printing, always remember that you’re at the mercy of a series of photochemical and mechanical processes—from your imagesetter through the printing press—that, in many ways, haven’t changed since 1900 (if that recently). Temperature, humidity, and ambient static electricity play large roles in the process, and the people who operate these systems are at least skilled craftspeople; at best, artists.
