Hello,

I created a business card in Photoshop with Black and Blue (PMS 2935) and saved it as a PDF so I can have it printed.  Well, I received an email back from the business card people with the following request:

"The pdf file of the business card was in CMYK (Cyan, Magenta, Yellow,Black) format.
You want the job printed in PMS 2935 and black.  We need art that is spot and black not cmyk."

I currently have the business card as .psd file.  How do I do spot and black?

Spot colors in photoshop are a little tricky. You have to create Spot Channels via the Channels palette, and place colors into those channels ONLY.

From the channels flyout menu select "New Spot Channel". Then place your pantone color, one per channel, in that channel.
