CMYK values when printing text

While designing your artwork, keep in mind the following.

Designing the text, which must be printed black, try to stay away from using all 4 CMYK colours.

Using all colours can result to problems with fonts when printed.

When a printing sheet goes through the 4 towers each containing one of the CMYK colours the sheet may go slightly off which may cause, e.g. yellow edging around black letters.

These are very rare cases; however, we had approximately 1% of orders printed with edging when four CMYK colour values were used.

To avoid this possible problem, you can change the CMYK values to Cyan: 0% Magenta: 0% Yellow: 0% Key (black):100%.

This way the black printing tower and not all four colours will print the text.

You need folded leaflets?

You need folded leaflets? We are ready to help you. And here are a couple of hints.
When we fold paper, it cracks. It happens to any paper and the thicker the paper, the deeper the cracks are. And, on the other hand, the darker the colour, the more visible it is. Printing companies use creasing (hitting paper with a blade without cutting it) to minimize this effect. Besides that you can design the leaflet so that the lightest colour will cover the area of folding. You should think about it especially if the thickness of paper is equal or higher than 170 gsm. If you have any questions about designing folded leaflets, please contact us for more information
