Printing Options Explained

One Color Printing:
One color printing means that your design contains only one ink color. Gray scale designs, contain a range of grays, and is also considered one color printing

Two-Color Printing:
Two color printing means that your design contains two different ink colors.

Full-Color Printing:
All print designs with more than two colors require an ink process called full color printing, which is also known as CMYK. CMYK stands for Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Key (key means black). These four ink colors can be combined to print an unlimited number of colors. Remember, if your design contains more than two colors, select full color.

White Ink Printing:
White ink is a special, unique ink that prints best on darker colored papers and stocks. White ink can be printed with CMYK printing if the design contains white and additional color elements.
