Creating a fine halftone effect

May 23, 2013 7:48 PM

Hi I have created a sticker on Illustrator and want to give it a fine retro halftone effect. Tried allsorts and I am having trouble getting it to look good.1 (Medium).JPG

This is the look I want just a very fine halftone effect.

    I am not seeing a halftone but rather some dithered noise. I don't think the pink is a 4-color process. Instead I would imagine it was a pantone. Add a little noise to a solid color.

    I think what you see there is film grain from the camera which took the photo.


    There is a grain effect in Illustrator. Effect > Texture > Grain.

    Do you want the entire artwork to appear as a halftone printed piece of artwork or just the pink, circular area?  Have you tried Effect > Pixelate > Color Halftone?
