I would like to be able to take a business card, scan it and be able to print in two colors (Even if the business card supplied is in 1-4 colors) as an add on a placemat. It will be printed on a Riso 2 color duplicator. I have been in printing 25 years (4-color) but I know nothing about the pre-press side. Need some advice.
Example: I want the logo, phone number, web address in one color and all the rest as a second color, all depending on the colors I have on the printing press. Can anyone help me as to what software I might need?

Re: Business Card Spot Color
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

There are lots and lots of variables to this question that make it next to impossible to answer, but here is something you can try:
Whenever you are printing, there is likely to be an advanced print settings dialog box that lets you make adjustments. Often, setting the correct kind of paper will help, but usually it has to do with "color intent". Look throughout your printing dialog box for something that says: "color intent" or that has values like "perceptual colorimetric" ,or "relative colorimetric", or "absolute colorimetric", or "vivid", or "business graphics". Experiment with these to see the different color output values.
The print dialog box will have descriptions of each of the various "Colorimetric" schemes, so pick a different one and see if that doesn't help. If it comes down to actually modifying the color of the image before printing, refer back to this question for more help.
The solution is very simple, if you CC is not activated soon, go to the service provider customer care and tell them the problem. Asked them that till your CC issue is not resolved you shall pay manually and they shall open your services with in a matter of minutes. There are providers who even facilitate by even providing services of sending customer care representatives to collect money from your mentioned place.
if your print workshop has cd with it install it then choose the template for business cards , design it and print. If your cards do not have cd with it you will have to go to openoffice.org download what you need to create the business cards. Hope this helps if it does'nt repost I will be watching for it.
your cards are too thick .the printer wont actually move the card down to yhe printing heads. try placing just one sheet into the printer or/and go to setup and see if you can set the printer for thicker paper try user defined setting. no promises.
I FOUND THAT IFI I START WITH CHOOSING THE COLOR AND THEN THE FONTS THE PRINTING IS STRONG COLOR. IF I CHOSE THE LETTERING AND THE SIZE FIRST, THEN THE PRINTED WORK IS UNSATISFACTORY BECAUSE IT IS TOO PALE TO READ.
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.
