We are pleased and proud to continue to offer spot colour litho printing. At a time when this skill is diminishing (as litho printers closedown, switch to digital or want to only print in CMYK) we welcome enquiries for spot Pantone colours and would be pleased to provide quotations.
On our litho press we can print in a single spot colour, multiple spot colours, or a combination of CMYK and spot colour. For each colour, a separate printing plate is used and colour is mixed off the press, by eye.
Why use spot colours?
There are many good reasons but mixing a spot colour, matching a standing copy or a Pantone reference, is the best way to ensure consistency in the colours of your brand – particularly on different types of paper. Additionally, printing spot colours means we can reproduce far more colours beyond the limitations of CMYK printing. What is CMYK
Only printing in four colour process (CYMK), by whatever process, cannot always guarantee a colour match. For starters, not all Pantone colours can be converted accurately to the CMYK process – some change very dramatically when split into a Cyan, Magenta, Yellow and Black mix.
If your logo is a specific colour blue, don’t put up with a CMYK conversion – have your stationery and brochures printed at Gowise Print and be confident your colour will be reproduced faithfully each time.
Important to remember: We can only offer spot colour matching with litho printing. Litho printing is designed for medium to large print runs and each colour needs a separate printing plate and set up on the machine. Sometimes we are asked for short run Pantone colour job. We will do our best to accommodate, but unfortunately with the set-up costs sort run Pantone litho printing is not always economically viable.
