  • Trapping In InDesign

    Any suggestions?

    have you tried to add a mall % of cyan to your black. if your black has more than K (cmyk) in the equation is should help with the overprint problem. 2% cyan in the blk should do it.

    also you could set up your file as black and 1 channel of your choice then have the printer assign your spot color to the second channel when it prints

      Hello, welcome to the forums.

      I agree that the puzzle pieces aren't quite in the "right" positions. I like the way they are placed randomly, but it's way too cluttered.

      I'll say the same thing I say all the time. Design your logo in black and white. And design it with a pencil and paper, not on the computer. When I design a logo, the computer is only on maybe the last...
