Nice 2-color job (is that a built black?), clients appreciate getting more bang for their buck. How'd you get that big dot effect?

i do not know what "built black is. I used the halftone filter in PS for the dots.

sorry, don't know if an official technical term, but I meant that all the printing colors at 100% on top of one another building the black, instead of using black ink. Kudos on the filter control, that can be tricky. It looks like you used the old fashioned rub on dots. The one and only thing I liked about Freehand was the ability to apply different halftone screens to shapes within the same document, it was great for screenprinting, I wonder why Adobe doesn't make those halftone tools more versatile. So is this going to be a regular old 4-color process job then?

too bad, theres lots of potential for a cool print job there, but i guess it won't make a difference in the result he gets from the card.
