  • 2 colour printing

    I need an answer to a hopefully very simple (possibly obvious) question.
    I am preparing a 2 colour leaflet with Quark and Illustrator: black and a pantone colour. Can I leave black as black or do I need to specify it as a pantone/spot colour?

    Hope that makes sense, any help would be appreciated.

    Welcome to the forum raroo, you can leave it as plain old 100% black.

        Yeah, as long as it's 100% black you will be fine. A good tip would be to eliminate all the swatches you can from your document except the ones you need. That way you don't have any chance that something is a different color. The other thing is to print a PDF with separations on (if you don't have a print driver that can do it) and you will be able to see if it separates ok.

          Honestly, your advice and critique is golden and I will review this entire thread plenty while creating a new resume. The nostalgia I spoke of was merely to show a grandkid the Super Chad or to look back...

          I presume you posted your work for crit because you have a desire to improve.

          PD You may have them but I have print sources that don't like to go back to more than the latest couple. And these are big places. i WISH they would hang on to the older versions and know how to use them....
