Title: How do I lighten small area, to make it 'bleach' to get better contrast with blk
Post by: Sparxz on September 10, 2018, 11:03:34 pm
How do I lighten a small area, to make it 'bleach' to get better contrast with black text?
Please see the area in the image attached of Business card.
Have tried a few things, and want to limit the total number of colors used, for consistency.

Thanks.

it depends on the pdf version you are targetting.

if you will produce a pdf that contains transparencies and your printer can handle that pdf, then you can simply put a white shape with transparency behind the text...

Outlining the text or adding shadows are other options. For business cards since the text will be small a vignette will work best.
