We receive artwork from all types of sources and one aspect of my job is to make sure the artwork being received is appropriate for our medium.

Overview:
Although halftone images may seem intimidating for some, the truth is, producing halftone images are easy once you are aware of the fundamental principles of the process.

1. Select the right size of an actual photo. Photo’s will work best if image is larger than a 3x3 and the highest quality in resolution.

2. Photo touch up and conversion, this process is essential to creating your photomask.

3. Printing, this plays a vital role in the success of your photomask. Always print on approved film.

4. Wash-out, your attention to detail is required. You don’t want to over wash those tiny dots!

5. Clean, tape & apply.

6. Setting blasting pressures and sandblasting.
