Screen Tint Spot Colors and Type

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to screen tint variable text at a percentage of a spot color and be able to have it appear on the same separation after composition?


For example, we have a 2-color business card that will be reproduced via offset or web press.


The phone label is 60% PANTONE 362C and the phone number is 100% PANTONE 362C. After composition, the 60% spot text and 100% spot text become different separations. (Technically, turning our 2-color business card into a 3-color business card.)


This isn't a problem with variable frame background colors, just the the text contained within.


Surprised that we haven't run into this situation before. Thank you!
