What do I have to observe in terms of lines?

Please make sure to use a sufficient width for lines when creating your layout. This also applies to fonts.

  • Positive lines (dark lines on a bright background): min. 0.25 pt
  • Negative lines (bright line on a dark background): min. 0.5 pt

Why must positive and negative lines have a specific weight?

Thin lines designed with a colour application of below 100 % per colour channel may seem broken, uneven, blurred or cracked due to the halftone screen.
