What is the minimum color application?
Too little color application in printing leads to the color being not or nearly not recognisable depending on the print process and print substrate. We therefore recommend a minimum color application of approx. 3 to 5 % per color channel; the color can also be composed of one single color 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
Color application = 5 % C + 5 % M + 0 % Y + 0 % K = 10 %
