Spot Color Business card

I would like to take a business card, scan it and be able to print in two colors (Even if its a 4-color or 1 color business card).
They will be used on placemats as adds, and I will print on a Riso 2 color duplicator. Example, I want the Title, email, and phone number to be one color and the rest of the business card (say logo website etc.) another color. Of couse the color will be decided on what print color cylinder I decide. Can you tell me what software to use in order to do this?
Thank You!

    After I get a customers business card, I will need to convert it into 2 spot colors to run/print on lets say on an AB **** for a placemat printed ad. I want to keep the layout and everything on the origianl business card the same except I need to be able to seperate certain items so as to print in 2 colors.
    Thanks for your help!

I suggest using 'The Gimp', which is free open-source editing software. Just scan the business card in as you would a photo, then follow the simple directions to change, layer, or color the text or background. You can download The Gimp here for free. Good luck, you have a very unique advertising idea there.

Double check that none of your printer's jets is blocked (test page!) and convince Print Shop and your printer's settings that your process colors are the ones in the printer, e.g. RGB or CMYK versus CKMY, 7-color, etc.

Poor color printing


It means that the printer is not spraying properly all colors.

If the bar are regular, that means that the printhead is blocking the spry at regular times intervals.

Sometimes this problems is related to the printhead.

You find out if it is a faulty printhead by removing it, leaving in in isopropyl alcohol overnight or replacing it.

If printhead is fine then it is a problem with the control board.

Printing text but not colour graphics


First try printing in another program. (something that has color in it) If you can print color in another program then the problem is Hallmark. If you still cannot then your probably out of color ink or it dried up.

Hope this helps.

"A" - the dates on which the color expires may indeed be the same as the dates on which the color expires for the use of the color when you refill the color ink from the refill bottle.

Blank print but eats ink levels


I would imagine that you are printing in black more than you realize. The color inks tend to last longer because they are not normally used as much. Also when you print in color you are always using the black ink to make the correct colors. So every print that you have, whether it be black only or color only, the printer is using the black ink to make the colors. I work in a copier business and printer business and this is a highly asked question. Hope this was of some help.

Spot 2 color


Photoshop. Or, Corel PhotoPaint.
If the logo is in process color, you will need to make new color breaks. To do this, you need to have an application designed for manipulating pixels. Photoshop is the end all be all. Photopaint is cheaper, but definitely more convoluted.
You could attempt recreating the art, or having someone do it for you.

Business Card Spot Color


Normal 0 Driver could be corrupt.
Disconnect the printer or at least be sure it is turned off. I'd do both and reinstall the CD software program that came with the printer. When the software program asks you to connect the printer to the USB port, do so and it should again work properly.
Hope this helps. Bud
