I'm a New Media Publishing Undergrad student at the Rochester Institute of Technology and I am struggling a bit with my Print Production Workflow final exam. Don't worry, it's a take home final and my professor encouraged the class to seek out resources of any kind to help us, so I'm not cheating by asking
Anyways the question I'm truly stuck on is as follows-
Explain how expected dot gain ranges for the following paper grades, be sure to mention which has the most dot gain and which has the least, and why.
I already know the basic idea that uncoated absorbs more ink and therefore has the most dot gain, but I have no idea what grades 1-2 and 3-5 are exactly. Any help would be appreciated.
Also two small second questions I could use help on is which two print manufacturing processes are used to print trading card wrappers and then the text on pills, such as the word Advil on advil pills, my best guesses so far are flexography for the wrapper and inkject for the pill.
Thanks for any and all help!
