    Checkerboard pattern?

    kcrossley Level 1

      I'm using a chekerboard pattern on a business card design and I want the pattern to be visible, but subtle. Basically, I'm overlaying a white checkerboard pattern overtop of a solid black background. The white checkerboard is set to a transparency of 5%, which I think should yield a 95% black for every other square. Do you think 95% is enough to pull this off or should I go a little lighter?

       

      BTW, the reason I'm asking this question is when you use the separation preview in InDesign CC, any screens that are 10% or less don't show up in the preview, which made me nervous.
