    Dotted line thickness

    oldcompositor Level 1

      Hi folks,


      I am doing a table with dotted-line strokes and alternating tint fills. My current color for both the strokes and fills is PMS 300 U (or something similar, dark enough for text but clearly distinct from black).


      I'm wondering about the thickness of the dotted strokes (currently 0.25 pt). I want the strokes to be relatively inconspicuous, but obviously there are limits to what can reliably be printed. The job is going to be done with sheet-offset on uncoated paper.


      I really have no experience of dotted strokes (is it different from solid strokes?) printed offset. I know that you can't judge things like this from laser output.
