Designers, be more creative than ever before.
Before our digital printing process, you needed to flood an ink color over a white sheet to yield the same affect. That caused issues with consistency in background color and marking. And, since all inks (including white) are transparent, you couldn’t print anything on a colored stock without the stock color influencing the appearance of your ink colors (spot or CMYK).
Well, those days are gone. Go crazy – build a file with a white under-print for areas where you want to maintain the integrity of your PMS match or a CMYK full color image. By first printing white on your piece, and then printing spot colors or CMYK images after, you get the best of all worlds.
