Spot color

If the project makes use of only one, two, or three colors (including black) you should probably use spot colors, such as those offered by PANTONE. Spot colors use a different ink for each color, and each color requires its own color separation. If your budget is limited, consider the following:

• obtaining a two-color look by printing on colored paper and using only one spot color

• using tints (percentages) of spot colors to create shadows or highlights, thus giving the impression of a broader color range
