Digital Media students learn about printing process
At Keystone, students gain valuable experience and knowledge both in and outside of the classroom! Students in Assistant Professor Rachel Urbanowicz’s graphic design fundamentals class recently visited @PDQ Print & Fulfillment to see first-hand the printing process.
The site visit allowed students to get a better understanding what happens when their print designs are sent to a printer, including how to prepare jobs, deal with color modes, and set up bleeds and crop marks correctly. They also had a great conversation with David Price, co-owner of PDQ.
