    How to Invert a Design in Adobe Illustrator

    Let’s face it: not all customers send in perfect designs. Sometimes, artwork needs some tweaks (or a complete redo). Say you’re given artwork originally printed on a white background with black lines, but the client wants it printed on black with white lines. Simply changing the black lines to white lines doesn’t always cut it. The artwork looks fine, but not as good as it could look. By inverting the artwork in Adobe Illustrator, you can make your artwork stand out. Cory Romeiser of Golden Press Studio shows you how to invert artwork in Adobe Illustrator to make your life a little easier.

    Printing with water-based ink is a whole new ball game compared to plastisol ink. One of the challenges of water-based inks is achieving proper cure.
