What is the minimum colour application?
Too little colour application in printing leads to the colour being not or nearly not recognisable depending on the print process and print substrate. We therefore recommend a minimum colour application of approx. 3 to 5 % per colour channel; the colour can also be composed of one single colour channel (e.g. 5 % Cyan, 0 % Magenta, 0 % Yellow, 0 % Key).
Pink area with the composition 5 % Cyan, 5 % Magenta, 0 % Yellow and 0 % Key
Colour application = 5 % C + 5 % M + 0 % Y + 0 % K = 10 %
