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%

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

I just had a vendor spec for black:
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.

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.

Check with printer.

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.
