Yellow, cyan, magenta and black they are all green - Minuteman Press

When a printer tells you your job is going to be printed “full colour” it usually means that they will use a combination of cyan, yellow, magenta and black to produce all the colours, shades and hues found on your printed piece. With those 4 colours we can create pretty much any picture you can imagine. One notable exception to that is metallic colours which are tough to produce using CMYK.
We have switched to using vegetable based inks for our larger runs. Current technology has created beautiful inks that are bright and vibrant and they are also absolutely environmentally friendly since they are renewable, biodegradable and 100% recyclable.
Do you have a project that you’d like to get printed with the greenest process possible?
