colour separation services
For a multiple colour design, every colour has to be separated to a single layer. Depending on the complexity of the design, the studio offers halftone, CMYK and spot colour separation services.
Halftone separation process uses dots that layer on top of each other to create multitude of colours.
CMYK process separation mixes 4 main colours (cyan, magenta, yellow, black). Colours are transparent and different angles to layer on top of each other and produce a full colour image.
Spot Colour Separation is mainly used for printing text, solid line or area images. This process uses colours that are not mixing and each colour is represented by it’s own ink.
