| | Ordering more than one color on a design
Ok, stupid question alert! I've ordered a few one color designs from F&M and I've managed to get those ordered and designed with minimal issue. I'm trying now to wrap my brain around doing more than one color. So I have a few questions.
1. Each layering is considered a color no matter if it's the same color repeated right?
2. When ordering transfers can you do gradients and like 50% opaque colors?
3. When ordering transfers you have to start with the top first and the base last right?
I've digitized with embroidery for quite a while so have the whole color layers down and how to view objects by their layers (it's hard sometimes not to).
I know it's dumb stuff but I just want to be sure I'm comparing apples to apples and don't REALLY mess up my first multi color order. I've read about trapping but just was making sure each color layer was what counted as a color and not the actual color. Also about doing some sort of gradient or blend. It's a lot to learn and every day I feel like I'm making progress in Illustrator, but I can't wait till I can do the 2 minute knockouts of artwork. And even print my own transfers.... wow maybe someday ;-) thanks
