Hi everyone, is there a 4 color CMYK ink set available that can be used to print either spot color prints or 4 color prints? Like just basic 4 colors. I looking to experient with 4 color halftone prints but would like to use the same ink to do spot color. ...is this possible or can you not mix and match? thanks kindly

4 color process inks are formulated differently then regular inks. the main difference is that 4 color process inks are very translucent. it is not a good idea to use process inks for mixing custom spot colours for this main reason.
