Who needs to read the small print?

Don't mix colours on small text!

Get away from blurry edge text

Stay away from blurry edged text

Colour mixing is great on larger areas, as most printing processes use a four colour system you need to mix the pure colours to create those secondary hues – everyone knows when it comes to print that yellow and cyan make green. But when it comes to small text, secondary colours can make life difficult. Because you need to use two colour screens on a very small area, any misalignment can make the small print have hazy edges, which will make it difficult to read. So with small type sizes, try to stick to one print colour (usually black) and give your readers the best chance of taking in every detail.
