When it comes to designing for print, there are some basic things that you need to know, and if you do, your printer will love you for it. Here are our top ten.
1. True Black.
When you’re designing, and you pick black, even when working in CMYK, it reverts to *almost* black, (#000000 or 75/68/67/90 in CMYK) a default in the colour picker. When this almost black goes to print it comes out looking grey, which means unhappy clients.
Here’s the solution. Go to the colour picker, and change the CMYK values to C50 M40 Y40 K100. True black for print, every time.
