  • 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...

    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"

      200 "proposals" and 10 won?
      That's success?
      I'm assuming the same amount of effort and hours went into the 190 failures to bring in cash.

      All of this points to why I try to stay clear of logo design except in the rarest of situations, and I never entertain thoughts of entering contests where I'd likely not be paid for my time.
