Notes on the Process:

A print’s final quality will only be as high as the design allows it to be printed. As with all tradecraft- preparation is key.   

As a general rule to keep in mind- work within the process and it's inherit physical limits rather than at, or past their boundaries. 

Lack of adequate trapping, heavy ink coverage early in the layering, and not utilizing overprinting or knockouts will cause your overall quality to suffer due to the physics of ink on paper.
