Black. Not the weight but the colour.
We (my colleagues and I) were discussing what each one of us used as a CMYK value for when printing a solid panel of black (just the colour, no text). A 100% K black lacks depth without percentages of C, M or Y, and as such we each had differing values for the C, M and Y added. Is there an accepted standard?
With regards to typography, what would be used as the CMYK value for black, when printing white text on black? If CMY values are added, this could cause a fringing effect if misaligned when printing (yes?), so on smaller point sizes would a standard 100% K be recommeded?
Cheers for any thoughts!
