    You will have to ask each printer you work with what they need to do your job. Every process you named is different and has different requirements. The same job done by different printers may require different settings because of their equipment or workflow or preferences.

    The Large Format Forum (this forum) is probably not the place to ask this question. I suggest you do a google search on "prepress" or "printing make ready". I suspect that Screen may have some helpful information on their website.
