Any tips on getting small colored text to print clean and sharp in Illi CS3? We have 7 pt type labeling rivers, for example, over greenish shaded relief. The proof that came back from the 4 color press looks sharp down to about 10 pt type, but anything below that is bloated and puffy.
I was comparing it to our Freehand originals, under a loupe, and the labels are one color with crisp edges. But coming out of Illi, the type is made up of multiple color pixels. The color swatches came over directly form Freehand, and the font is the same, so there must be some setting that I am missing.
Take a look at the pictures to see what I mean.
