WORKING WITH TEXT

When working with small text it’s best not
to use colours which contain more than one
ink. All printing presses have a tiny variation

in the positioning of the different colour
printing plates. It’s fi ne to use coloured text
in headlines or type above, say, 12 point, but
below that the blurring may be noticeable and
won’t look too hot. The same thing happens
when you knock white text out of a coloured
background made from more than one ink.
Be careful if you are putting text over a photographic background as the

text may be hard to read. To overcome this you may want to lighten or
darken the image in an image editing package such as Photoshop.

You may need to adjust the image more than you expect – always think

to yourself “is it more important to see the image, or read the text?”

Adobe InDesign, Illustrator and the latest version of Quark Xpress have
some interesting layer effects that work in a similar way to Photoshop.
Whilst we recommend that all special text and layer effects are done
in Photoshop, the layer effects in InDesign and Illustrator can be
used, providing that your fl attener/raster effect settings are correct
– see ‘Layer Effects and Transparency Effects’ on page 13 for more
information.
