November 05, 2019 Category • Printing In Color

A common issue many businesses may have is getting the correct color for your printed branding merchandise and marketing. Nowadays, theres a lot more printing thats also digital, so youve got a lot more CMYK printing going on. However, there are a lot of companies that have CMYK colors in their logo. The issue with this is that they are harder to replicate 100%. What are CMYK Colors? CMYK stands for cyan, magenta, yellow and key. The key color in todays printing world is black, so K is black! At Foote Printing, we have some smaller machines that we can print to color two spot colors with, and we have our bigger machines that are capable of printing five and six colors. These bigger machines give us the ability to put one or two Pantone Machining System (PMS) colors on right along with the CMYK like what you need to print pictures. Which Colors Can be Hard to Match?

Light has a major influence over how we see colors, and that is proven by the viral internet Blue and Black or Gold and White Dress.

What is Bleeding? Whenever we ask our customers for files of their design, we ask for high-resolution PDFs with 1/8th inch bleed all around the design. The bleed is kind of like room for error when it comes to printing. If you were to send us a picture without a bleed zone, you might see that part of your picture gets cut off too far or not far enough, and then you have a white space along the edge. Why Do You Need Bleed Space? When you cut a high number of products at the same time, there is a little bit of give when the machine cuts through the sheets. If you do not have that bleed space, you could have white showing, or we would have to cut it shorter than you expected. Many customers have a hard time understanding the concept of bleeding, so we wanted to show you in this video what it is and how it can affect your final product. Having a proper bleed zone is going to help us give you the product you need and allows us to make your piece more professional. If you need
