    About mixed ink swatches.

    krissserz Level 1

      Hi!

       

      I was wondering two things:

       

      01_ How do mixed ink swatches work in real life (in offset printing)? Let's say I made a mixed ink swatch with 2 Pantone colors. Does the printer premix the 2 Pantone colors before printing, or does the 2 Pantone colors overprint on the press (depending of the pourcentages of each Pantone color)?

       

      02_ Can I do a mixed ink swatch in Illustrator? If so, how?

       

      Thanks!

       

      Chris.
