4 Color Process is too Dark

Posted on Tue, 9 Nov 2004 at 9:23



All my 4 color process jobs are turning out really dark. If I just lighten the image then the colors seem to shift and I end up with too much or one color in the design. I'm printing from Illustrator 10 and CS to a Oyo Tech Styler LIP 1400. Can anyone recommend something that can fix this problem?

Hey Rick,I am not an expert in process printing,But what seems to have worked for me is going back into Illustrator, Going to Filters,- then into adjust colors, then lightening up each color about 10 to 15%? Good Luck!

nick, try separating your colors with a high GCR. ie. then the majority of the image/ink is on the k plate, with the CMY just barely coming into play as needed. The CMY should form a very grey image if sep'd correctly. use a setting for a WEBPRESS. reduced overall plates for gain if necessary. a proper underbase with a light hand is essential as well.

good luck - dave
