Question

I need to print a cover with black text, on uncoated paper. I want to use one of the Pantone blacks. What is the difference between Pantone black and Pantone process black?

Process black is a more transparent ink, which will give you a grayish look.

If you want a darker black use for example Neutral black 165-1-7c. But it is important than you talk to the printer and tell him that you want the blackest one possible. It is not that important that you specify it on the file. It is more important that you clarify this talking to them.

Some people have special inks for this. Where I live some people call it "night black".

If you want a really black black and your design is on 1 ink you can ask them to pass twice the paper so you have black on black. But it will cost a bit more.
