Standard Black / Rich Black
By Web Team / September 13, 2021
If you have ever had problems getting a nice deep black printed, you are not the only one.
When designing your art, please use our new rich black formula.
C 0%, M 0%, Y 0%, K 100%
We have adjusted our profile rips for this specific formula and are getting a much better output.
Black comparison and paper release
True black 0-0-0-100 vs Rich Black 75-75-75-100
Transfer release showing true black vs other blacks and overinking
Ink release from paper
RGB blacks convert to a weak CMYK black

Reasons why we recommend this formula C-0, M-0, Y-0, k-100
- Better transfer yield: reduces overinking which leads to print defects such as banding, mottling and transfer wrinkles
- Automated proofing: less likely to flag your project
- Standardizes your black when submitting files to various print houses
- Cleaner black vs. muddy black
