What is considered Rich Black?

Posted on: May 23, 2013

In printing, Rich Black is an ink mixture of solid black with additional CMY ink values. This will create a darker and more rich looking black than printing 100% black (K) ink alone.

We recommend printing 100K/50C/40M/25Y as a Rich Black. Adobe Illustrator Example:

Ill Color

Adobe Photoshop example:

PS color

If you don't see these CMYK ink values, but RGB values, you'll need to change your color mode to CMYK. Or simply download a free template with all the correct settings before you begin your design.
