    Travis, I've got a question about the new Skinlab artwork. In some of the imagery, there's a lightning bolt of sorts, and the blues are real vivid.

    I once made an image that had a lightning bolt with the same vivid blues, but as soon as it was converted to CMYK and printed, those electric blues were pretty much lost. How do you get those blues to remain in a 4-color job? Do you have to use a 5th spot color? Is it easy to set up?

    Thanks for any help.

    basically, very anal color correcting and test printing AFTER the cmyk conversion.
    the conversion fucks up alot of things in the aqua and magentas spectrums...
