We recently had the honor of creating a concert poster for the storied blues and gospel singer Mavis Staples of the famed Staple Singers.  The performance is part of Season 38 of ACL Live, a series of live concerts broadcast on public television as part of Austin City Limits in Austin, Texas.

The poster is inspired by the beauty shops and hair salons of the era in which Mavis grew up and rose to fame.  It’s a 3-color 18″x24″ screen print with an edition of 175.

A limited number of prints will be available in our online store on June 28, the day after the broadcast.  Check out some close up shots of the finished print below.

What angles are you using for each color? Especially when they overlap.
Or are the halftone angles for each color all the same? Good work dudes.

Our angles start at 22.5° and go up 30° from there. So the second would be 52.5° and then 82.5° and so on.

Thanks Dan!

Let me know if I’m close….300dpi with a Halftone frequency or (lines/inch) of 55…maybe 45? Or does it change sometimes? Thanks again.
