Pick a colour. Any PMS spot colour!
It allows a smooth impression of a single colour with no screen dots, as is the case with Process Colour (which I’ll leave for a later post).
Because spot colour inks are mixed according to established, standardised formulae, colours are consistently accurate across jobs printed on the same stock.
Printing is an Art!
The manufacturers who produce the base colour inks are strictly licensed by Pantone for colour accuracy. This enables us to deliver reliable, reproducible spot colours to our customers.
After accurately weighing each portion, the inks are thoroughly mixed before delivery to press roller. PMS colours will always be the same, subject to variations in paper stock on which a colour is printed.
Sometimes, for example high volume runs, it’s more convenient to purchase the required colour in premixed tins.
Special effect Inks
These are only available as spot colours.
Spot colour prints are vibrant, sharp and bright. They’re a great choice for logos, text and simple illustrations, providing uniformity across our printed jobs.
