    I'm going to agree with <b> I believe that is a custom design job, not a font. There is a similar font called Thought Zest which might work for what you are looking for....

    Quite honestly?
    It's a cover for a project you've been working on.
    Because we do not know what your project was that is using this cover, there is no way to know if it works or not.

    huh? what is color print standard? and designing a logo in photoshop is like shooting yourself in the face.

    buuuuut, im guessing your looking for a saturated black, in which case it would be ...

    C - 30%
    M - 30%
    Y - 30%
    K - 70%
    ‘Our great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is privately controlled. We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated governments in the civilized world. No government by free opinion, no longer a government by conviction and the vote of the majority, but a government by the opinion and duress of small groups of men.’ - Woodrow Wilson

      But thats 160% D-Frag!!! Are you positive that is not going to be too saturated?



      Live dangerously my friend.
      Some advice is profound, some is clever. The above post is a good example of both.

        Too Saturated? That'll be more of a grey or a brown than a black

          I just had a vendor spec for black:

          C=90%
          M=90%
          Y=80%
          K=100%

          Seemed a tad heavy to me I guess I'll see how it turns out. Oh they spec'd all raster images at a minimum of 355 DPI at print size also.
          I could give you a dose
          but it would never come close
          to the rage built up inside of me
          fist in the air in the land of hypocrisy

            As PrinterDriver would say... "Talk to your printer". LOL. I think the term you want to use is rich black, not industry-standard. Depending on which printer you're using, the formula for rich black varies.
            Broke or just cheap? Read my list of free open source alternatives to Adobe Creative Suite software.

              Check with printer.

              One shop I worked for used

              30
              30
              30
              100

              Another shop I worked for used

              30
              0
              0
              100

              For those of you not familiar with a rich black, it is primarily used on large solids so they don't look flat. Rich blacks look more...well, rich.

              It is not wise to use it on fine lines or text because the pressman will be after your head.

                what about a pantone grey, then converted to cmyk? not perfect either though.

                i like d-frag's answer better.
