Where Can I Use My Magnets?
These magnets are suitable for fridges or similar indoor use. Not weatherproof, or suitable for cars as not a super strong magnet. When in doubt, request a sample and you can check it out for yourself.
Should You Use Rich Black?
For the richest of deep dark blacks in print use 50/40/40/100 as the CMYK value. If printing small black text (or knocked out text), we recommend a k only black (0/0/0/100) to avoid misregistration issues.
Can Greys Can Shift?
CMYK Process colours in the grey range and de-saturated images can shift in colour throughout the print run and may cause the greys to appear either cooler or warmer. For a neutral grey, we recommend converting all grey values and de-saturated images to true greyscale consisting of K (black) only values.
Is there colour variation on solid blue?
Due to the nature of club-run printing you may experience colour variation in solid fills of blue. For great blue results, we recommend a 30% difference between your Cyan and Magenta levels to ensure a nice rich dark blue, rather than purple.
