- Colored Text Might Not Always Be the Best Option
The text that you use in the color copies can be colored as well. Unfortunately, there might be problems with the color of the finished product especially when the size of your text is too small. Printing machines or presses tend to have problems with printing color in a very confined space. The different color plates do not always line up neatly especially when the sections are small. This can cause a slight tinge to appear in the colors of your text. Large sections do not have this problem and therefore you can easily print your headlines or larger text items in color. If you want to print all of your text in colors, you should avoid using a small size for them. A text size of 12 point is generally the least acceptable size for all color printers.
- Place Text over Graphics Carefully
When you are designing a color copy that will have text placed over images, you need to ensure that the text is readable. Usually the text becomes illegible. The color of the text should be different from the image otherwise the colors will get merged. The text will become much more difficult to read in that case. The best option is to make the image faded. Fading the image or lightening it will make the text stand out from the background image. Contrast the text and image to ensure maximum readability.
