I-Trap In Depth

I-Trap™ knows how trapping should be done and is able to carefully analyze your important print job and determine where and how traps should be applied. This is done by carefully consideration of ink coloring and usage, as well as special conditions for trapping to pick out those locations where trapping is needed.

Depending on the color-trapping options you choose, overprinting can affect an objects outline or its fill. This means that if an object with a red outline is set to overprint its outline only, then any portions of another object that are obscured by the first objects outline are printed. This overlap creates a color trap.
