Overprinting

To create color mixtures during printing, printing inks, as CMYK and possibly spot colours, are printed on top of each other.

Operating principle

This results in different colours. This is possible because printing inks are translucent. In some cases overprinting is not desired, then the image and text parts must be created as knockout. Black ink is set to overprint by default in the application programs.
