Prepress/Sheetfed for Dummies

We have a new person working at a big customer who has no printing experience  :facepalm: and I am looking for some resources to send to her. I used to have a great site that went over screening, imposition, basic color theory etc.. but now I can't find the page.

Anyone have a site like this in mind?

Thanks

Or you could tell them to go find a PocketPal. I have been using one, and getting it updated since I was in printing. Always keep it around. I remember the last few times, I just asked one of our vendors if they knew where I could get one, and they just provided me one. Very nice.

Yes, rare I know.
