  • 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.

          You didn't say that, nor did I imply that you did.

          What I'm saying is that you seem to be looking at it from the perspective of being able to learn on one's own to create interesting and...

          You might be referring to Nikko's situation; I wasn't. I was referring specifically to your comment that I quoted about how logo design can be self-taught.

          I did not use any metaphors, disparage...
