DESCRIPTION

Expand your typesetting skills with more complex type-layouts, the subtleties of line- and word-spacing, and a solid understanding of measuring and registration for multiple color printing. Students will learn how to plan text and layout for their own 2-color print, as well as gain more technical knowledge of press operation, ink mixing, advanced typesetting, and edition printing.
