Recommend me 5 colors that look good on photocopy
« on: September 07, 2014, 04:56:15 am »
Hi! I need 5 colors (shades of gray/black) that'll look good on photocopy for a cheap but beautiful black/white design. Any suggestions?

hi lectus

the optimal gryscale palette depends on your layout elements (images, graphics, titles…) and on the quality of the printer or photocopier (fife shades are a high number for low quality machines…)
you need to do your own experiments. take something like 20%, 45%, 65%, 85% and 100% to start with.
