  • who prints black the best (kinkos, copymax, sir speedy...)?

    who prints black the best (kinkos, copymax, sir speedy...)? I'm just looking to get a poster printed and usually for school I go with kinkos just because it's a 24hr business near me...granted thier capabilities are limited, but I do not know their ability to print a nice solid black on a larger sized print like 24"x36" (or even tabloid size for that matter), nor do i know if copymax or sir speedy could do a satisfactory job. So I ask you all, if you had to choose between those 3, who would you go with, for who can print a nice clean black very solid?

    I would specify that the print have no banding (see disclaimer in red below). They may have to run their machine at a slower, higher quality speed to do it and it may cost you extra.

    I would also ask them what a good rich black is so you get full coverage.

    It's up to you to ask for what you want, ask to see sample prints, and pay for a proof - not hope for the best.

    Some of those shops have great techs and good quality printers, others don't. They are franchises with owners of varying skills. If they can't answer the rich black question, move on.

      It's being printed with an inkjet so it will use multiple colors of ink to arrive at the PMS color (or as close as possible).

      But specifying it as a PMS color will give the printer a target...

      Thanks Ratkins, that's a good point. I have never been instructed to create a white ink and I only ever use Paper, I guess for some reason I was thinking of Paper as overprinting, when of course it knocks...

      Hi, I need a design for my Steam group, in the size 184px per 184px. My group name is Brasil Fighters, but we were thinking of a BF in the Avatar, but feel free to be creative! Thank you, Lucas

      On a window cling it is possible that the white would be white ink. I'd make sure the production manager understands what you want. It's not 4/C, anyway....
