Design Tips

Back to Colofest Deep Dyed Introduction

Colorfest Deep Dyed Logo Mat designers can achieve amazingly intricate detail, as well as shading, gradating, highlighting, fine lines and dazzling special effects with a highly sophisticated, computer-controlled dye injection process. Virtually any design can be reproduced in a mat that are truly eye-catching and extremely durable.
1. Detail lines should be at
least 1/4 inch (6.35mm) wide when the background is a lighter color than the line. If the background is darker than the line, increase the minimum width of the line to 3/8" (9.52mm) -1/2" (12.7mm). This will insure clear print definition and message readability.


2. It's best to put darker colors next to medium-to-dark shades and print light colors next to medium-to-light ones. The reason for this is that when dark colors are injected close to lighter ones, they could mingle together at the point of physical contact and cause "color haloing".

3. To help your design or logo
really stand out the way you
expect it to on the finished mat, use a variety of colors rather than two or more shades of the same colors.

4. Choosing the right color combinations can greatly enhance your mats. By
consulting with your sales representative, you can avoid a dark background color like burgundy from "bleeding over" and blocking out script and other thin detail lines in a lighter shade such as Confederate grey.

5. When a registration mark is required on a darker background, make sure the mark itself is at least 3" (76.2mm) in diameter. If you are using a lighter background, the mark can be reduced to 2-1/2" (63.5mm) in diameter.
