Drink coasters

I’m starting to get the hang of GF prepress with Affinity Designer. Initially, my design had a lot of layers and I forgot to remove the portions that were behind opaque graphics, so my first print had scores and engraves on top of engraves — basically a mess!

We all had to go through the learning curve.
