Is blind stamping/printing with no ink counted as a colour?
Yes, blind stamping (an impression without ink) is counted as a colour as although it appears no ink is used, a separate film, plate and press setup are required. We have developed a signature technique to ensure a crisp result.
We advise clients to think of blind stamping as a dessert rather than a main course. Large areas of text become difficult to read and can tend to halt the communication of your message. Conversely, design elements and images can be stunning with a sharp, crisp letterpress print.
