Correct - this is a digital comp. The ink we use is Matsui black. It is not a completely opaque black - it shows the trapping - and I exploit that sometimes. I tend to like big traps but I guess that is a personal preference.
Sometimes in the past it has been more or less transparent depending on the ink we have used and what we have mixed with it.
Yeah. What brand. That's the one thing that made me cry about my Helmet poster. The black wasn't black enough and my shitty trapping shows through. I tried to be so smart and simple and still missed the mark.
