    one colour printing

    I'm designing invitations and posters for a client and they want to keep costs down as much as possible.

    Therefore I'm desinging them to be printed in one colour.
    When setting up the file in illustrator, lets say I use a blue, is it ok to use the blue but change it's transparency values to give me more colours to work with?

    I know it's a basic problem but I've only started recently in print and all the work so far has been full colour.

    Thanks

    If you use a spot colour and shades (not transparencys) there of it will still count (and cost) as a one colour process.

    Thanks for the reply. That helps a lot.

    I've a fair bit to learn about printing and illustrator it would seem. Always done my vector stuff in flash.

    Thanks littleMatt, your reply has probably taken hours off the job
