What is the term rich black and how do I get it?

E-mail Print PDF

Rich black is an ink mixture of solid black, 100% K, with additional CMY ink values. This results in a darker tone than black ink alone. If you print black alone as 100% K, the resulting black may not be as dark as you might like.

We recommend using: C-60 M-40 Y-40 K-100

This will give you a deep, dark, rich black.
