Adding a 'glow' around some letters that I had outlined.
Document is in CMYK mode. I adjusted the raster effects to 32 ppi, but still had a problem.
No, spot color, just a white letter shape with a blurred copy of itself underneath to create a glow effect.
After fighting with it for a few hours, I put it done and continued on with the rest of the work I needed to do. I went back at it later and I reduced the size of the art down to 11" X 17". That seemed to do the trick.
