  • Color problems with Xerox 7750, Quark

    The problem with color results when 2 colors are placed over each other in Quark. The area where the colors overlap may be affected or certain colors may just print incorrectly. I've been able to fix it, but am not sure if this is the correct adjustment.

    It seems to be related to trap settings in quark. To solutions or "workaround" that I have discovered are:

    1. Go to your Print Dialog box and click the output tab. Set “print colors” to “As is”. This will override the trapping settings for the printout, but not change them.

    2. Go to your Preferences in Quark and change the trapping setting to “Knock out” This sets the trap to zero. This is not a universal Quark setting and must be adjusted for each file.

    Has anyone had any of the same problem? How did you resolve? Thanks

    On all client Quark files I work on for printing, I knockout all and apply my own traps and overprints.

      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...
