  • How many C's do I need to print in Greyscale + a PMS Color

    Hello All,

    I do a lot of graphic design and I have a client who needs some brochures printed. So I sent out a quote and in the quote, I wrote Greyscale + a PMS color for the text color. After I got a few quotes, I was confused since one simply said B&W 1/1 while the other said 1c/1c. What #C do I need to print in Greyscale + PMS color? I got really confused since the quotes have like a 40% difference in that the B&W 1/1 is cheaper...

    Thanks!!!

    -Peter

    Greyscale + PMS = 2 colors. 2 colors front and back = 2/2.

    If I were to ask for a quote I would write it like this:

    "2/2, Black + PMS both sides", or " 2c2s, Black + PMS"

      It's probably a gray camouflage stock texture multiplied over a burlap texture multiplied over vector art of bricks.
      You can get gray camo textures just about any stock site.
      For example,...

      I wouldn't even try using the tire for an A.
      Incorporate it in another way.
      That doesn't look like vector art. Photoshop? Either way you might have issues with the way that tire is illustrated...
