9. Preparing Images for Use on Packaging Materials

Chapter 9. Preparing Images for Use on Packaging Materials

One area that appears to have a bright future for Photoshop users is preparing images for use on various print mediums. This may include packaging and carton work, and printing on various substrates, plastics, large format posters, and prints.

Printing on various materials is typically done using a flexo press. Flexo printing allows you to print on a variety of odd materials.

If you can prepare images for flexo printing, you can prepare images for just about any other print medium.
