We advise against printing elements that have both transparency and opacity. The contrast between
transparent and opaque will be stark, especially for white and lighter tones.
Transparent colors will look very different without the white underbase. Take a look at the photos below
We always recommend ordering samples to make sure your graphics come out the way you want.
Keep the placement of the Apple logo and text in mind when designing graphics that are transparent or
no background color.
When editing transparencies in Photoshop, it will be referred to as "opacity". Opacity
and transparency are the inverse of each other - 100% transparent is completely invisible, and 100% opaque
In the image above, you can see how solid color gradients with a white underbase compare
to color and opacity gradients without a white underbase.
