Need to print a grayscale photo, help needed!

Posted on Tue, 7 Dec 2004 at 6:07



I have a photo that is in grayscale. How do I print this with pad print?

I guess the substrate has to be white or very near white (Light gray). Also using the black ink for cmyk colors is my next guess.

But how do I make the film for this? I mean can I print the gray scale photo as it is or what?

You may have to change the "lpi" and "angles" of the artwork, don't know what to, as I do not know what graphics program you are using.

Good luck
