Q. What is "Spot Colour"

The printing process which usually uses a limited number of base colour Pantone inks, which are combined in set proportions to make up a large range of standardised colours, and is known as "spot colour" printing. Generally, spot-colour inks are specific formulations that are designed to print alone, rather than to blend with other inks on the paper/plastic to produce various hues and shades. The range of available spot colour inks, much like paint, is nearly unlimited, and much more varied than the colours that can be produced by four-colour-process printing. Spot-colour inks range from subtle pastels to intense fluorescents to reflective metallics.
