Join Deke McClelland for an in-depth discussion in this video Identifying and correcting spot-color mishaps, part of Creating and Adapting a Logo.
- Alright, here I am, still inside Acrobat,…looking at that PDF file.…And at first glace, everything looks like…it's working out beautifully, which is why we,…of course, glance at things more than once.…And when we do, often as not, we discover mistakes.…For example, in the case of this document,…if I go ahead and advance to the second page,…which represents the Pantone 325 color.…And I go ahead and zoom in here.…On the left side of this artwork,…you can see that we have a little bit…of an edge to the ring.…
So in other words, a piece of that ring,…that ought to be printing in that deep blue,…is gonna end up printing in the turquoise instead.…And the same is true, but even a little bit worse,…down here in the lower right region of the logo.…So what we've gotta do is fix that problem…by totally dividing those shapes.…It's not good enough to work with a clipping group.…We need to divide that logo graphic into two pieces.…Alright, so I'll go ahead and switch back to Illustrator.…And I'm gonna twirl open…the solid colors layer right there.…
