Annual Reports and Table Color Blue

base's picture

I am working on an annual report at the moment, and a question rose about using blue in the financial tables. Is blue still visible when you copy it on an old black&white? In other words does the blue turn in to grey or white?
cheers

Test it.

Most regular copiers do reproduce even a non-photo blue (which is pretty darn light) as a light gray. Generally, copiers do some local contrast enhancement, so even if the shade of gray gets a little dark, any black text on top of it should be perfectly readable.

My personal design philosophy is that anything that can't survive a fax of a photocopy is not clear enough.
