All rich blacks are set to C = 60%, M = 40%, Y = 20%, K = 100%
All fine black text is set to C=0%, M=0%, Y=0%, K=100%
For the best colour consistency we recommend choosing colours from the pantone colour bridge or solid coated.
Blacks - for large blocks of solid black - please use rich black, for black text (paragraphs etc) please use K - 100, this will avoid any registration issues.

If a font changes due to not being outlined, we take no responsibility
