Darkroom employees need quick access to what artwork needs to be burned onto screens. Whether you're using a direct-to-screen system or taping transparencies to burn them, quick access to the artwork needed is important. You want each team member to be fully aware of their jobs and where they're at in your process.
Many shops will have the designer print out transparencies/film, attached to a work order, and leave them in a bin. Each morning these files can be brought over to the darkroom to burn screens.
Paperless shops using a direct-to-screen system will have their darkroom team pull up artwork from the Printavo invoice and use this. You can store production files right on Printavo invoices making re-ordering a breeze.
