Good Day

I have job having 7 Colors and I have been asked to done it in 5 Colors.

(1) Pantone 485CVC (RED)
(2) Pantone 356CVC (GREEN)
(3) Pantone 116CVC (YELLOW)
(4) Pantone 301CV (D-BLUE)
(5) Pantone 279C (L-BLUE)
(6) Pantone 732C (D-BROWN)
(7) Pantone 730C (L-BROWN)

I can use Red, Green and Yellow on separate screens where as remaining
“FOUR COLORS” are Dark Blue, Light Blue, Dark Brown and Light Brown.
Please guide me how I can finish the job in five colors as my boss advised
me to do it in duotone. The job is on Illustrator CS2 and Colors are PMS.

Please guide me how PMS Colors can be done in DUOTONE.

I have been working in filled of screen print for many years but unaware
about duotone in Illustrator.

I would sincerely grateful for your reply and Guidance.

With Best Regards

Do you have placed halftone images in your document? He likely wants you to open them in photoshop and convert them to a 2-color duotone. You could do a fake duotone in Illustrator by using a 1-color image and setting it to multiple over a solid of another color.

Can you post a sample page, so we can see how your layout uses colors..
