How to Separate a 3-color Design for Screen Printing

In this tutorial, I show you how to separate colors to prepare your art for screen printing. In the video, I use Adobe Illustrator, but you can follow along and learn the basics even if you use CorelDraw, Inkscape or any other vector app.

If you have a multiple color design that needs to be screen printed, this is an invaluable skill to have. I show you how to use registration marks, separate the colors and convert everything to the right black for printing onto transparent films. I even show you lots of tricks and keyboard commands in Adobe Illustrator that you can use in other graphic design or illustration projects, saving you tons of time.

This is a long tutorial. If you go to the video on YouTube, you can use the time markers to jump to any section of the video.
