I am making some stuff for a restaurant in Austin. This includes T-shirts, business cards, signage, etc. I’m using Photoshop Elements right now. I’m getting a new computer and software soon, but I may need to finish this job before then. The printer in Texas says that EPS files would be OK, but I have no experience with these.
Let’s say I’m using 3-4 colors, without any blending (that is, solid colors with smooth edges). How the heck do I present this in EPS? I know for PSD one would do about 300 dpi in the size of the object being printed. OK, but one of the objects is a fairly large sign, and each part of the sign will be printed separately and assembled. How does one do that for an EPA file? Does each color need to be on a different layer? Would I be sending this guy layers, or just a flattened image? Would it be the same for shirts and signs, or different? The printer seems pretty flexible, but I’d like to handle as much on my end as possible to prevent him from doing any separation or whatnot that I could do myself.
