We'll start this Illustrator tutorial by learning about the RGB and CMYK color models which is something every designer must understand. From here, we will begin learning about several topics that are specific to preparing jobs for commercial printing. First, we will learn the difference between spot color and process color printing. Next, we'll move on and learn about topics like the appearance of black, knockouts and overprinting, color separations, trapping, and transparency. We'll wrap up this course by learning how to export a press ready PDF out of Illustrator. After completing this tutorial, you will have a good understanding of the concepts, tools and techniques used to prepare print ready documents in Adobe Illustrator.
