Topic: Printing Overprint / Knockout
Hey guys, this is copied out of an email I sent to someone (who I haven't heard back from), so I hope it makes sense.
"Let's say I have a masked .psd file placed in InDesign with some text around it that is text-wrapped by finding edges. I then export the .indd file to a .pdf and it gets printed from there. The text that's within (or "over") the bounding box of that image gets printed at a heavier weight than any text that's outside of it. This doesn't appear in the .pdf, only the physical printed copy.
Some research led me to think this is an overprint or knockout issue, but I'm wondering if there's an easy fix. Do I just have to select that text box and check the "Knockout" box in the Transparency palette? From what I understand, overprint prints the black over whatever is underneath it, while knockout essentially just prints the black, and ignores anything else that might have been layered under it."
Anyone have any experience with this?
