Design considerations for Digital Output


See: Banding


Smooth gradients do not produce consistently - similar to the banding issue above - because the lower resolution (compared to Offset Printing) might not accurately reproduce a narrow tint range as a smoothly graduated vignette, but will instead create noticeable blocks or bands of colors.

To resolve this issue – adding a texture or noise throughout the gradient can reduce (but not avoid) this.
