4C B&W:

Quadtones, or four-color “black and white” images made with four inks and printing plates, produce images of incredible richness and depth.

Two Hits Black:

Presses with more than four printing units allow for the use of touchplates and spot and additional colors. Applying an extra or second hit of black ink can increase the contrast of the image.

Crossing Over:

Crossovers—running type or image across the gutter—creates a dramatic widescreen look but can be difficult to manage. It is especially difficult to match type, rules or circles. Crossovers also need to be adjusted to accommodate different types of bindings.

Spot Me:

Touchplates of Pantone colors 1375 and 300 provide additional color on a portion of the image.
