The standard ink for tab titles is

However, other colours may also be used effectively with clear film laminate
or on uncoated tabs, and we can match most any colour when a colour sample

Where the extra cost is justified,
photography, illustrations, text copy or company logos may be printed in

It is better to locate a problem before rather than after printing a job.
