non-screened colors

Post by mpedro » Thu May 15, 2008 11:28 pm

Is there a list of link or color sample of all the colors that you can print with cmk that can produce no screened colors. I got the corel file from Summa with all the colors and the settings for each color(cmyk-chart.cdl) I used the colors settings they provided but the color still printed out with the little dots as colors. So is there a list of non dot based colors that we can print.

the list and it's a short one...

cyan,yellow,magenta, black,

red (100% yellow 100% magenta)
blue (100% cyan 100% magenta)
green (100% yellow 100% cyan)

better known as pure hues. :wink:

who's up for a pure hue design contest?

Pedro, Summa has a book with all the color combinations you can achieve by overprinting ribbons.
I believe I paid $30.00 for it. Although this should come free with the machine is well worth having it.
You have to ask for it as its not available at their website.
