Printing halftones with wide open areas.

Posted on Wed, 7 Jun 2006 at 9:05



I seem to have trouble printing 1 color halftones on darks with moires when the image has a solid bold outline and a lot of open spacees with fine halftones in it. Can anyone suggest what percentage of halftones and size mesh to use?
Thank, Chuck :?

With light on dark, with lots of solid areas, the best thing I've found is 110 mesh with a 25 lpi elliptical dot, 65 degrees. You can push white through that onto black and get great results. If you need a smaller halftone, I'd recommend 305 mesh, 65 lpi (if you can hold it during screen exposure- 55 otherwise), elliptical, 65 degrees. I also plan on 50% and up going to solid, making severe correction needed on your file before output. Good luck, hope that helps!
