I had a design commissioned and the files the designer sent me are giving me problems. I usually use AICS4, and I dont have any rip software. The designer sent me a .psd with 2 layers, and a .tiff file he said was the seperation, which is in gray scale. I tried to create a new artboard in illustrator with cmyk 300 dpi and drag it over but it wont let me change the grey to black and when it prints its giving me blurry lines on the transparency. Its really starting to frustrate me and I dont want to waste any more ink or transparencies. Anyone know what I should do? I did email the designer and asked him to send me a vectored .ai file but he hasnt responded yet.
