Avoiding Blues to print Purple

When using a blue in your design, always make sure to leave at least a 30% difference in your Cyan and Magenta values. EXAMPLE: C-100 M-70 Y-0 K-0

How to Achieve a Rich Black

To achieve a Rich black it must be composed of solid black, 100% K, with additional CMY ink values. This results in a darker tone than black ink alone.
*All small text, thin and light weight fonts that are BLACK should be made up of 100% Black and set to overprint to avoid any registration issues.

When black is printed alone as 100% K, it might not be as deep or dark as wanted. We recommend using the following CMYK mixture for a Rich Black: C 40 M 20 Y 20 K 100 (DO NOT build small text, thin lines, or light/thin fonts as rich black – see “Small Text” section above*)
