 Round Rings are the most common and economical. They provide the most choices in capacities.
Straight D Rings are useful in the larger capacities becuase they hold the sheets straight. This metal is always mounted on the back cover.
Angle D Rings are also useful in the larger capacities. The Angle D holds the material at an angle so that index tab dividers remain more visible.

>Using Colors & Separations
For standard silk-screen or foil stamping work, use pantone spot colors not CMYK. Remember that with silk-screening and the nature of our substrates, knockouts and trapping procedures are different that it is for offset printing. More colors will overprint and traps are heavier. Because color registrations are much more difficult to keep consistent, more tolerance needs to be added. If artwork contains color tints color percentages need to be between (15% - 80%).
