Colour saturation should never exceed 240% in total otherwise faulty printing will result. 100% Black (K), 50% Cyan (C) and 50% Magenta (M) is sufficient for a deep black. Colour saturation should be at least 15%.

Important information (such as e-mail addresses, telephone number etc.) hould be placed with a spacing of at least 3mm from the edge (5mm in the case of posters and 7mm in the case of magazines).
