Yes, it is silly which makes you wonder why Envato allows it? While I’m sure its possible to apply spot colours, trapping, knockouts, kerning etc. in Photoshop, its not exactly ideal and far from perfect. That’s why we have Indesign and Illustrator which makes the process easy compared to Photoshop.

I’m writing this because as a buyer, looking for some business cards, I’m frustrated to see just about everything designed as PSD!!!

maybe the print designers should start a trend and flood the marketplace with indesign files suitable for spot colours and print ;)

I’d still like to see how you manage spot inks in photoshop.

spot colours are possible in photoshop, far from ideal they are a pain to do when software packages like indesign and illustrator can do them so much more efficiently.

Spot colours are assigned to channels within a cmyk photoshop document
